2023-2024 Catalog [ARCHIVED CATALOG]

Academic Calendar 2023 - 2024


The 4-4-1 Calendar 

A unique element in Northland’s academic program is its calendar. The summer session is 12 weeks, fall and winter sessions are each 15 weeks, and the May session is 4 weeks in length. The summer session allows for extended time for field experiences and internships. Fall and winter sessions allow time for maturation of ideas in a program of varied courses. The shorter May session provides an opportunity for concentration through seminars, field experiences, travel abroad, independent study, and internships.
