The Education You Want. The Flexibility You Deserve.
Online Learning at NLC.

Northern Lakes College provides a Supported Distance Learning (SDL) environment, offering a guided learning setting that supports you to succeed.

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, 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.

SDL includes unique online delivery options such as NLC LIVE Online™ and NLC Anytime, Anywhere.
