A great deal goes into preparing for your arrival to Northland Community & Technical College. Please use the following steps to enrollment below to help guide you through the process.
Students can apply directly online. After applying, submit your High School Transcripts/GED. Do you have Transfer Credits? If they are from another Minnesota State College or University, complete an eTranscript Request Form to request an evaluation. If you have other credits, please submit official transcripts for evaluation. Residents of North Dakota need to fill out a reciprocity form. Finally, complete and return an immunization form to NCTC. (See Minnesota's College Immunization Law.)
Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at http://fafsa.ed.gov. Apply early to ensure financial aid is complete prior to the beginning of the semester. NCTC’s FAFSA code is: 002385. After completing the FAFSA, apply for NCTC scholarships. If you are eligible for Veteran benefits, contact the Veteran Resource Center.
NCTC requires all students to complete the Accuplacer before registering for classes. The computerized Accuplacer tests your reading and math levels and are used to enroll you in the appropriate courses. If you have not completed it within the last two years you will need to test. Sign up for an Accuplacer Testing Session on the Assessment website. Please bring a photo ID to the testing session. ACT, MCA, and SAT test scores may be used instead of Accuplacer test scores if they are eligible.
When students are on campus for their scheduled SOAR day, they will meet with an academic advisor that will help guide them into the right courses to meet their educational and career goals, and connect with the many campus resources. Join us on campus to register for classes, receive important information about academic program(s), financial aid, billing & payment, campus services and take your student ID photo.
