Program Description

Reaching your educational goals is possible with our Academic Upgrading Program. We are invested in every single one of our students, taking them from where they are, to where they want to be. Our program is an accessible and affordable way to prepare you for your high school diploma, career training, or employment. Our program is designed for adults of all ages and abilities. Contact us today and our professionals will help you develop an Education Plan to achieve your goals. In an effort to reduce additional barriers to our Foundational Learning and Academic Upgrading learners, the Board of Governors of Northern Lakes College, with support from the NLC Students' Association, has removed the application fee effective for the February 2021 intake. Those who have already paid the fee will be reimbursed. Questions can be directed to or 1-866-652-3456. Fees (select to view):
