Online Orientation

Northland’s online orientation offers participants the chance to be introduced to the services at Northland, answer questions, and provide guidance, as well as offering students a reference point for access to information at any time. Students may visit the online orientation as often as needed.

Because orientation may make a significant difference in a student’s success and persistence in college, we strongly recommend all students review the online orientation to remain current with college information. Family members are also welcome to review the information with you.
