The Northark’s core curriculum courses include certificates of proficiency, technical degree programs, GED programs, college transfer programs and customized business and industry training.

Northark’s partnering Bachelor's degree program makes it possible for students to complete their first two years of a Bachelor’s degree on their campus and then transfer to a partnering school to complete the remaining years of their degree. This program is for all interested individuals but is most suited for working students who cannot afford to relocate. The partnering schools are located within the Harrison County. However, if you are still unable to transfer and attend another campus, arrangements can be made to compete the degree on Northark’s campus or online.
