Academic Advising

Our goal is to provide you with the knowledge, tools, and resources to successfully manage your college experience and achieve your academic goals.

What We Do

The Northland Academic Advising Team supports students' path to graduation with plans for their course of study, class registration, and 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 make the students' transition to 4-year and other schools as seamless as possible by providing necessary information and assistance.

Degree Audit

Degree Audit is a product that you can use to view your current degree audit (program that you currently have declared through Northland) or you can choose to run a “What-If” audit. With a What-If audit, you can choose a program (other than your current program that you have declared) to see how your courses may be applied.

To access Degree Audit Self-Service, simply login to your Northland eServices, click on “My Academic Records,” and then “Degree Audit Portal.” Click on the link that states “Click here to access Degree Audit Self-Service” and log in with your StarID and password.
