Students are classified at Northland as either full-time or part-time students. A full-time student is a student whose course load totals 12 or more credits during the fall and winter semesters. A part-time student is a student whose course load totals fewer than 12 credits during the fall and winter semesters.

The class standing of students is calculated using the following formula:

  • freshmen until they have earned 26 credits
  • sophomores when they have earned 27 to 57 credits
  • juniors when they have earned 58 to 89 credits
  • seniors when they have earned 90 or more credits
