Academic Advising

The purpose of the advising is to provide academic guidance to Northland students. Northland advisors assist students with plans for their course of study, class registration, and help provide academic advice.

What We Do

Northland advisors assist students with plans for their course of study, class registration, and give academic advice. The advisors strongly recommend that students meet with them regularly to plan academic schedules to assure students are on track to meet their educational goals. The advisors work to make the students' transition to 4-year and other schools as seamless as possible by providing necessary information and assistance.
