Northern Lakes College is a community college serving over 1,500 students in northern rural communities. Administration campuses include Grouard and Slave Lake. With learning centres in over 17 communities, Northern Lakes College serves students in an area that covers a quarter of Alberta, but has less than four per cent of the population. Students may take academic upgrading, certificate and diploma programs, university transfer courses and workforce development courses. Many programs focus on health, the oil and gas industry and apprenticeship trades. Northern Lakes strives to break down the barriers of location and educational experience by offering diverse programs. To reach students throughout the region, Northern Lakes uses distance learning methods, such as online technologies and videoconferencing. Partnerships with local First Nations and Métis settlements, businesses and industries allow Northern Lakes to offer new programs to meet community and industry needs. The Grouard campus has a student residence, student family housing, cafeteria and gymnasium. The Slave Lake campus has a cafeteria, leisure and aquatic centre, gymnasium and a new student residence.!SPAN>

The University Studies program assesses all applications on the basis of whether applicants have demonstrated a reasonable probability of academic success, as shown by previous educational history, relevant life experiences, writing abilities, clear educational goals and evidence of motivation. Generally, students who wish to enter this program must have: High school diploma or equivalent OR mature student status - 60% in English 30-1 (English 30) or 70% in English 30-2 (English 33) or an assessed equivalency. Be deemed by the admissions committee (program advisor, program tutor, director) to be an exceptional case as evidenced by a strong commitment to an educational or vocational goal and a demonstrated reasonable probability of academic success.
The program is offered using a mix of distributed delivery strategies. These include: computer conferencing; video conferencing; self-directed study; instructor led face-to-face classes; and on-site tutorials. University students benefit from small class sizes and individual tutoring in each subject. Classes are usually scheduled in three hour blocks once per week and will run at selected sites using delivery technologies as student numbers warrant.
