EAST GRAND FORKS – In advance of the start of the fall semester, Northland Community & Technical College is offering one-stop enrollment days in June and July.

The events, called “Take Off Tuesdays,” are meant to help alleviate some of the stress associated with college admissions. Those interested in starting classes at Northland can meet one-on-one with college representatives who can help guide them through the enrollment process.

“Navigating the college admissions and enrollment process can seem overwhelming,” said Nicki Carlson, director of enrollment management and admissions at Northland. “Getting started can often be the hardest part, so by offering a one-stop shop to complete the necessary steps towards admission and enrollment, we want to make it extremely user friendly for prospective students and their families.”

Through June and July, prospective students can drop by the college on Tuesdays without an appointment to get started or finish the enrollment process.

Carlson said the goal is to help people move from applicant to enrolled student in one day.


Staff representing multiple departments will be available to help students complete the enrollment process in one day, including assisting students with applying for admissions, class registration, scholarships and financial aid, student billing, and taking any required assessments. In addition, staff from the Academic Success Center and other campus services will be on hand to assist students with their needs.

Students should plan to come in person and bring essential documents, including a high school transcript or equivalent, a government-issued photo ID such as a valid driver's license or military ID and an immunization record.
