Northern Lakes College focuses on accessibility to meet the changing landscape of education and the needs of learners. Our innovative Supported Distance Learning (SDL) model ensures programs and services are accessible to students everywhere. Our students do not have to relocate to pursue their post-secondary goals. They do not have to move away from familial or community support systems. For many students, this accessibility is the difference between participating in post-secondary education or not.

How does NLC put the support in SDL?

· NLC offers instructor-led, online classrooms that allow you to interact live with other students.

· Classes are recorded so you can watch them anytime that works for you!

With access to instructors, online tutoring, e-counselling services, scholarships, funding services, the NLC Connect app, and the library’s extensive digital collection, you will receive the same quality learning experience you would on campus.
