Admission Information


Applications for admission to Northland College are evaluated individually to assess each student's level of preparedness for both academic success and ability to become a contributing member of the Northland College learning community.

Admission Criteria for New Entering Students

Applications for admission are evaluated on the basis of high school curriculum, cumulative high-school grade-point average, ACT or SAT test scores, and, when available, high-school class rank. Before acceptance decisions can be made by the Office of Admissions, applicants for admission must submit:

  1. a Northland College Application for Admission (Applying on-line is strongly recommended, but a paper application may also be requested from the Office of Admission.);
  2. an official high school transcript (official transcripts must be sent directly from the high school of origin);
  3. an official ACT or SAT test score report. (Results from either test are accepted and no preference is given to either test score. Test scores that are reported on official high school transcripts are considered official.)

Applicants for admission should have a minimum cumulative high-school grade-point average of 2.0 to be considered for admission. Students with college aptitude test scores and academic records below the median for high school seniors may be considered for admission if other factors indicate their potential for academic success in college. Letters of recommendation may be required for these students.

Admission Criteria for Transfer Students

Applications for admission from students with previous college experience are welcomed. Transfer students may begin enrollment at Northland in either the fall (late August) or winter (early January) terms.

Applications for transfer admission are evaluated on the basis of college curriculum, college credit accumulation and cumulative college grade-point average. Before acceptance decisions can be made by the Office of Admissions, applicants for admission must submit:

  1. a Northland College Application for Transfer Admission (Applying on-line is strongly recommended, but a paper application may also be requested from the Office of Admission.);
  2. an official college transcript from all institutions previously attended (official transcripts must be sent directly from the college of origin);

Applicants for transfer admission should have a minimum of 12 earned college credits and a cumulative college grade-point average of 2.0 to be considered for admission. Students with college academic records below these standards may, on occasion, be considered for admission if other factors indicate their potential for academic success in college. Letters of recommendation as well as high school transcript and ACT or SAT test scores may be required for these students.

Enrollment Deposit

A non-refundable $200 enrollment deposit must be received by the College once a student is accepted. The tuition deposit portion of $100 will be applied to the student’s account after the add/drop date. The room deposit portion of $100 will be returned to the student after graduation if proper room checkout procedures are followed and there are no room damages.
