If you have an academic or financial hold on your accounts, you will not be allowed to register. Notification about account holds is provided on your course schedule.
To clear a hold from your account, you should contact the Registrar’s Office to resolve academic holds and the Student Financial Services Office to resolve financial holds.
Prior to registration each semester, you must also be cleared for registration by your academic advisor. Contact and arrange to meet with your advisor prior to the beginning of registration each semester.
Normal course loads at Northland College are 12 to 17 credits for the fall and winter semesters and 3 to 5 credits in the spring term.
Overload charges apply for students taking more than 17 credits in the fall and winter semesters or more than 5 credits in the spring term.
Students taking 20 credits or more in a single term must obtain approval from the associate dean of academic affairs prior to the beginning of the term.

- CC — course is full and instructor agrees to increase the course capacity
- PR — prerequisite is not met and instructor agrees to waive the prerequisite
- IC — instructor consent is needed to register
- TC — time conflict between two courses on your schedule and signature needed of instructor(s) affected by conflict indicating that the conflict has been worked out.
