    Over 95 percent of students receive financial aid here. Northland offers a variety of scholarships to assure affordability. I feel like thus far my classes have definitely prepared me for a future career in my major.

    Northland gives awesome scholarships and financial aid. Many students come to Northland with their education more than half paid for through scholarships. Room and board and meal plans are the most expensive part of the bill for many students. Don't be discouraged by the sticker price, 99% of students an Northland receive financial aid--unless you're a 1%-er you won't pay that.

    Northland gives pretty much everyone half tuition scholarships, and then adds on more for those they deem deserving. Most of the students attend the school because it was the only affordable option for them (which, unfortunately, brings in a lot of people who don't necessarily want to be at that particular school). Also, most of the scholarships need to be applied to around march before your freshman year. If you miss it, you're out of luck. Nobody else is allowed to apply for a scholarship except the incoming freshmen. The nice thing about that, however, is that the scholarships earned are retained throughout your entire college career there.

    Yes! Northland does a stellar job with scholarships to students. APPLY TO ALL THAT YOU CAN for Northland. The only reason I am coming here is because of the scholarships I got here. Try to get as many local scholarships as possible & save your money now for college expenses.

    It is expensive, scholarships are great though. Bang for the buck is a personal thing though. If this is the kind of school you are looking it is worth it, but otherwise you might be wasting money.
