Application Process

A student is considered an international student if an I-20 is required for residency and if the student will require housing with an approved Northland Christian Family or in the on-campus residence hall during the school year.

To make sure that Northland is the right fit for your student, there are several steps to the admissions process. Families are required to complete all of the steps outlined below before they can be approved for admission.

We would be happy to offer a tour to any prospective international student and family. Please contact the international program office to talk to International Program Director Dan Woods and schedule an opportunity to tour our campus.

Dear Prospective Northland International Family,

Thank you for taking the time to apply to Northland! Here’s what we will need from you:

FIRST, schedule a Skype or WeChat interview with our international program director. (This interview should be scheduled before continuing to the rest of the steps).

You can add him on WeChat or Skype under the user ID: DanielWoods777 and set the interview time, preferably around 9 a.m. Central time any weekday morning.

After a successful interview, numbers 1-4 should be scanned or photographed and e-mailed to
  1. Financial Declaration: All international applicants are asked to submit a financial declaration from their bank, verifying that they have funds available. Typically for our boarding students, it is best if the amount in the account exceeds US$40,000.
  2. $500 Application Fee: A non-refundable $500 application fee must be paid before we can issue the I-20. This fee can be paid by clicking the following link:
  3. Passport: A copy of the student's passport must be scanned along with the application.
  4. Official Transcript: We will need an official transcript of the last several years' grades, (from 7th grade and above) translated into English, along with CLASS RANK (example: 25/100 means the student ranks 25th out of 100 students in his/her class).
