June 15, 2020 – Northland Community & Technical College is set to virtually host Minnesota State Week on its East Grand Forks and Thief River Falls campuses June 22-26. Thirty state colleges and seven state universities of the Minnesota State system will participate in this second annual event.
“We are looking forward to hosting our second Minnesota State Week at Northland. We hope to encourage anyone that is considering beginning their education or making a career change to take the first step in that journey at Northland,” explains Director of Enrollment Management and Admissions Nicki Carlson, “Education can have a significant impact on an individual’s future and Northland is a nationally ranked institution that delivers an exceptional education without the high-end price.”
During this notable week, Northland will be offering virtual information sessions with admissions, academic advising, and financial aid professionals as well as virtual tours to help students and their families gather advice and have their questions answered on the college admissions and enrollment process.
“Minnesota State Week is a wonderful opportunity for students to virtually explore Northland’s campuses,” Ben Hoffman, Director of Advising and Registrar, illustrates, “Students can see first-hand the close-knit relationships that will be built with their advisors and staff at Northland. Students will learn how their educational goals will be met and how Northland is the perfect fit to help students from every background fulfill their career goals”.
As has been the case for twelve months, there is no fee to apply for admission to Northland, however, financing a college education can seem daunting at best. Students should feel confident that they are getting the best return on this investment.
“Financing a college education may be a burden for many and the process of applying for financial aid can be confusing and formidable,” reveals Lisa Bottom, Director of Financial Aid, “We hope to mitigate some of the anxiety associated with that process and demonstrate how truly affordable a Northland education can be.”
Those that apply for admission, request program information, or take a virtual tour of Northland during this week will be eligible to register for the Northland Is A Go Scholarship. One $500 scholarship will be awarded on each of Northland’s campuses.
Minnesota State Week is open for recent high school graduates, workforce professionals, and anyone looking to get an in-depth look at Northland’s 80+ program offerings.
