Learning & Disability Services

Learning Services are available to every student on campus. This may include students Requesting Tutors or those with Disabilities needing services. Learning Services also accommodates testing by arrangement with instructors. All services are provided free to students.

Tutoring Services

Tutoring services are available to all current Northland students free of charge. The Learning Center serves as a resource for students who want to improve their academic performance. Instructional services are provided to students who may potentially have, or are currently having, academic problems due to learning or physical disabilities, lack of academic preparation or other factors which may affect student progress.

These services are available from specially trained staff in areas of study skills, writing, communication, math as well as some content areas. Individual tutoring is also available to students who need help with content areas within their program from student tutors.

Walk-ins are welcomed, although appointments are encouraged to make sure students get help when they need it.
