is to further the academic goals of both the University and the student.

Furthermore, our sub departments are very involved in the technical functioning
of the University. For example, you would contact us:
· If you need a status letter (e.g. for the purposes of immigration).
· If you wish to apply for a student loan.
· If you wish to have transcripts or other official documents sent
to an employer or school.
In addition, our Student Tracking department maintains the database relating
to you and the program(s) for which you have registered. They monitor
your progress throughout the program(s), and will alert you if it appears
that any requirements have not been fulfilled. They are especially active
in the organization and processing of the examinations and communication
of exam results.
This is just a brief description of the many services the Academic Offices
at Northfield provide. We hope to be of assistance throughout your long and
fruitful relationship with Northfield University.
