Students will find a willingness on the part of faculty and staff to listen to them and encourage them in times of need. Informal levels of counseling in areas of personal, social, spiritual, and emotional development are available as requested or deemed necessary. Academic advising is also provided to all students as a fundamental need. Each student is assigned to a faculty advisor who is available to assist in course planning and selections, while addressing the student’s state of progress toward graduation requirements. Northpoint also offers a unique service of financial advising and planning that is aimed at promoting the highest possible level of stewardship for each student’s resources. Students who need help with their personal budgets and other financial concerns may inquire at the Financial Aid Office of Northpoint for help in this area. The financial principles they will learn through this service will better equip them for the future.
