Seamless Access

TRUE North uses fully validated, W3C web standards throughout the system. This means seamless and ubiquitous access from any web-enabled device from anywhere in the world.

Online Applications

TRUE North includes a fully customizable and flexible online application system. Your team can create and build the application with our built in tools. When students apply their details will automatically flow into TRUE North (after review), including documents and photos.

Easy To Learn, Powerful To Use

With its modern user interface, and time saving features you will quickly feel at home using TRUE North. There is no need to learn complicated database queries, we take care of that for you. We care about the small details.

Complete Financial Solution

TRUE North includes a robust suite of financial tools including invoice creation, fee and payments tracking, receipting, as well as expense and commission tracking. Invoices can be quickly generated with custom letterhead and custom payment instructions.

TRUE North allows detailed search and extract capabilities with all financial information, to ensure synchronization with district financial systems. Currently, we have built in support for SRB, CIMS and Navision. TRUE North also provides tools for homestay payment management. From within TRUE North you can select and create invoices for multiple students at once. For example, we have recently added additional financial search filters, so it is simple to track students with outstanding fees.

There are also useful statistics on the homepage that give a quick snapshot of district receivables, paid and owing, as well as expense tracking.

Student Centric

TRUE North is an international student tracking system. Everything in the system connects to the students.

  • Student Demographics
  • Countries
  • Agency and Agent information
  • Flight and Trip Information
  • Insurance, passport and study permit details
  • Home-stay Details
  • Fees


TRUE North is a common system – which makes us incredibly efficient and agile. When a user requested feature is added, every client benefits at no additional cost. New features are introduced in an intelligent manner to ensure you remain productive and uncluttered. We do not charge every client for the same enhancement. We build highly flexible and customizable tools to ensure you are in control of the fields you manage, the letters you generate, and every field within your online student application.

TRUE North is integral to the success of our International Student Program and allows us to efficiently process applications, track payments, maintain data integrity and so much more. The TRUE North Team is always available to answer questions and provide training, and has been exceptionally helpful in building custom solutions to meet our board’s needs.
