Parents and Guardians

Viewbook 2016We appreciate that attending college is a major milestone in any student’s life.

As the parent or guardian of a Northern College student, we want you to be thoroughly-satisfied with the quality of the education and support services that we provide. We view our relationship with our students and their families as a valued partnership, and seek to create a supportive environment that leads to success for all involved.

Northern College is a recognized leader in post-secondary education with a team of dedicated staff and faculty that have one primary focus – our students and their success. Each of our four campuses are tightly-knit communities where students, instructors and staff get to know each other by name, and genuinely care about student success.

Our small class sizes mean that our professors will gain a thorough understanding of your student’s academic ability, and provide personalized attention to support their continued academic success. This personal touch extends beyond the classroom and into the range of support services we offer, which includes Accessibility Services, Advising, First Year Experience and Student Services.

You can feel good knowing that we are preparing your daughter or son for a bright future. All of our programs are developed in collaboration with industry partners who sit on our Program Advisory Committees. These partners ensure that our curriculum is tailored to needs of local industry, so that our graduates are well-equipped for the job markets of today and tomorrow.

Campus life is also an important part of the student experience, and Northern prides itself on offering a safe learning environment, campuses equipped with the latest technology and opportunities for students to try new things, gain practical hands-on experience, form lifelong friendships, and even have a little fun along the way.


For all of our students, Northern College provides a transformative experience that leaves them well-prepared to begin a successful new career and join the growing family of Northern College graduates.
