It’s also a great way to get back into the swing of college if you are thinking about starting a new chapter of your life. Northland can help you transfer to schools like Bemidji State University, Minnesota State University Moorhead, St. Cloud State University, University of Minnesota Crookston, University of North Dakota, and more.

Education designed to fit your life.

Earning a college education doesn't have to be inconvenient; that's why we offer students multiple options when taking courses ranging from traditional face-to-face to entirely online, allowing you to choose the delivery method that accommodates your goals and learning style. And our more than 20 online program options prove that you can complete a degree from anywhere.

Zero textbook costs. One less obstacle.

We know there are obstacles between you and pursuing your degree. Northland is removing one of those hurdles by making your education more affordable with Z-Degree. Z-Degree allows you to earn an Associate of Arts (A.A.) degree while spending nothing on textbooks. Even if an A.A. isn't your current degree plan, taking individual Z-Degree courses offers you another opportunity to save money.

Your education, your way.

Northland's Competency-Based Education (CBE) programs and courses put you in control of your education. CBE is the only instructional model that caters to all learners, who often come in with different educational goals. You can earn a full two-year degree or any number of certificates — or sign up for one class (or several) to learn a specific new skill to advance your career or take your hobby to a new level of expertise.

Employers choose Northland.

The companies that work with Northland do so for a reason: They trust Northland to train the graduates that they employ. Our programs are designed to arm you with in-demand skills that matter in today’s competitive workforce so you can put your education to work immediately, which means a faster return on your education investment!
