Supported Distance Learning

The Education You Want. The Flexibilty You Deserve.

How is online learning different at Northern Lakes College?
NLC LIVE Online ™ provides a Supported Distance Learning (SDL) environment. We do more than simply provide learning material and let you learn at your own pace.

  • NLC offers online classrooms that allow you to interact live with other students and instructors
  • Classes are recorded so, if you miss a class or need a refresher, you can watch the session in the evening, over lunch, or anytime that works for you!

With access to 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.
