Program Delivery Methods

Academic Year - 2021/2022

Welcome (and welcome back) to college!

Northern College is returning to its more traditional forms of program and course delivery for the upcoming Fall Term (September 2021).  Some courses will continue to be offered online or through a hybrid form of delivery (combination of online and in-class activities). However, on-campus delivery, learning activities, and services are expected for most of our programs.  

The College continues to monitor pandemic conditions and will respond according to guidance from all appropriate government and health authorities.  Any required changes to our Fall 2021 programming will be communicated promptly. Please refer to https://www.northernc.on.ca/covid-19-coronavirus for more details on policies and procedures for completing your studies with us during the ongoing pandemic.
