Parents and Families

As parents and family members, you are an important part of the Northern community. The below resources will help you answer any questions, stay connected and ensure a successful college experience for your student.


Communication is key - stay connected to campus by reaching out with any questions you may have. Though FERPA regulations place some limitations on what we can share, there are many ways to communicate and partner with us.
