UNDERGRADUATE ONLINE EDUCATION

ONLINE EDUCATION

WE UNDERSTAND. WE HEAR YOU.

Not everyone can leave their ministry setting and be an on campus student. Life is busy and on campus traditional classes do not exactly fit into your ministry, family, and work schedule. Traditional education pathways may not be for everyone, so Northpoint offers online education for students who prefer other delivery systems. The benefit of taking online classes: personalized registration help from the Academic office, classes taught from a biblical worldview, and a manageable schedule. You can do this! Give us a call or reach out to us by email at [email protected].
