Why Attend North Lake College?

A community college is an ideal choice for international students. Affordable out-of-country tuition and small class sizes help make North Lake a great place to pursue your education.
The community college environment has many advantages:
  • Smaller class sizes
  • Individualized attention from professors
  • Lower tuition cost
  • Class credit transferable to four-year universities
  • Ideal environment to adapt to American academic practices
Many international students come to North Lake College to earn an associate’s degree and then transfer to a four-year university in the United States to earn their bachelor’s degree. This means North Lake is a great starting point for your American education.
