Distance Learning with Northern College means that you can learn from where you are today and develop the skills for where you want to be tomorrow. We offer various modes of delivery including correspondence, video and web-based courses.

  • A range of certificate and diploma courses and programs are available through correspondence, online or blended delivery
  • Flexible options to meet your needs
  • Tutor and faculty support
  • Study independently from home or at one of more than 94 Contact North/Contact Nord sites located conveniently throughout Ontario, including Northern College campuses
  • Study online through OntarioLearn, a network of community Colleges that develops and delivers
  • hundreds of web-based certificate and diploma courses and programs

Video courses enable students at any of our four campuses to be in the same class, with the instructor teaching from one of the campuses. Northern also offers video systems that allow students who live in various Northern Ontario communities to attend school without leaving their communities.
