Students can see when aid is applied to their account by watching their MyNIACC Portal. Aid is not applied at the same time for all students. Aid is applied to student’s accounts every two weeks.

If a student has financial aid that exceeds their charges, students will be notified on their MyNIACC Portal if a refund check is available at the NIACC Business Office. Students must have a photo I.D. to pick up the refund check.
