We will be continually updating this page with information and resources for our Northern Seminary community.  To the right, under Related Content, you can find additional information for you to use at this time.  If you have questions about the information below or cannot find an answer, reach out to us at We are praying for our community as they adapt to this season. 


For Spring 2022 and following, please follow these Phase III guidelines: 

Lisle Center Students  

We are following the CDC the State of Illinois guidelines for spacing.

Northern has retained in place enhanced cleaning protocols as well as other precautions as
recommended by public health officials as well as government entities. In this
phase, the building will be open to the public to include students, guests, faculty,
and staff for regular operations.

• Library Services: The library at the Lisle campus will open to students and
faculty. The Library will be open from 8:30am to 8pm Monday, Tuesday, and
Thursday, and from 8:30am to 4:30pm Wednesday and Friday.

In short, Northern will move slowly but methodically to ensure that we are
protecting our students and employees while still providing and maintaining
excellent customer service to our community.

All students should review the Northern Live attendance standards HERE. Most importantly, students must connect from a private room without distractions.
