Why study at North Lake?

Ours is the first and oldest Mortgage Banking associate degree program in the country. Created in 1991, the program was the result of requests from industry leaders to provide specialized education for entry- and higher-level positions in the mortgage-lending field. 

Thanks to faculty with decades of industry experience, North Lake students have access to national scholarship programs, job databases, career resources, and free online courses from the Mortgage Bankers Association.
