We're Here to Help!
Student Services is where you enrol and register for courses, process tuition and other fee payments, complete any required forms, and navigate the academic requirements of your program or any other aspects of your life as a student with us.
Advising Services are designed to help you navigate all the services and supports available to you as a student at Northern. Whether you are looking for support in your academic success, looking to engage in student life activities, or need guidance to make your time as a student at Northern as fulfilling as possible, our Student Advisors are available for one-on-one or group support in a safe, accepting, and confidential environment.
Join the Academic Success team at our Computer Bootcamp on August 31 at 1 p.m. to learn how to use the Blackboard learning platform and learn email etiquette with your student email. This event is offered virtually or in person at the Timmins Campus in Room F052.
Accessibility Services works with students with disabilities to provide learning strategies, accommodations, assistive technology, study spaces and other resources to help you succeed in your studies.
If you are registered with Accessibility Services, we encourage you to attend our Post-Secondary 101 Orientation which offered before the Fall semester to help you navigate the tools and services at Northern College that are available to you.
