About the Northland Catalog

Students are assigned to the catalog that is in force at the time of their first entry into Northland College. Students entering in the fall of a new catalog cycle are assigned to the new catalog. For example, a student entering in September of 2011 is assigned to the 2011-12 catalog, not the 2009-11 catalog.

Students wishing to declare a major or minor in a catalog newer than the one to which he or she is assigned may petition the Academic Standings committee for permission to move forward into a newer catalog. Once a student adopts a new catalog, all rules and policies in the newer catalog go into effect for that student. Students are not allowed to move backward to adopt an older catalog.

Sometimes it becomes necessary for the faculty in a department to make changes to a major or minor as it is published in the official catalog. This may be due to a correction of a typographical error or because of changing dynamics within departments. These updates are not made in the original catalogs as they appear here. Changes are processed and made public through Academic Council and are recorded by the Registrar’s Office. These changes appear on degree audit sheets as applicable. Students should check with the department chair person to help determine how to meet the requirements of any catalog changes that may affect his or her status. Please do not hesitate to ask your advisor or someone in the Registrar’s Office if you have any questions relating to academic policy or your academic progress.
