Admitted Transfer Students
Congratulations on your admission to North Central College!
We know there is still a lot to consider before making your final transfer decision. As the year progresses, a few other items may require your attention. The following is a list of the steps involved in the transfer admission and financial aid processes. We hope our admitted student list will provide you useful information and help make your transition to North Central as smooth as possible.
Submit your $100 tuition deposit to ensure your place in the class at North Central. Submit your deposit online, contact the Office of Admission at 630-637-5800 to submit a credit card deposit by phone, pay by check using the postage-free envelope provided in your acceptance packet, or stop by in person at the Admission Office in Old Main. We highly recommend you confirm your financial aid award with your transfer counselor prior to submitting your deposit. Deposits are nonrefundable.
If you plan to live on campus, complete and submit your roommate questionnaire with a $100 room deposit to the Admission Office to reserve your space in the residence halls. Campus space is assigned in deposit date order. Housing deposits must be submitted with a tuition deposit. We highly recommend you confirm your financial aid award with your transfer counselor prior to submitting your deposit. Deposits are nonrefundable.
Financial Aid and Scholarships
For full consideration, complete or update your Free Application for Financial Aid (FAFSA) form with North Central's FAFSA code 001734. Request transfer scholarship applications based on your academic and co-curricular interests. If you have fewer than 27 transferable hours, you may be eligible for a freshman scholarship.
Complete your medical forms before enrolling at the College. You will need your college id number to complete the forms. Call the Wellness Center with any questions, 630-637-5550.
Fall Term Transfer Advising and Registration
Once your tuition deposit is received, you will receive advising and registration details. Transfers with deposits on file by May 1 will have early access to schedule summer advising appointments. Fall Term begins in mid-September. Transfer Advising and Registration will begin in late May and continue through the summer.
If you are planning to start in the Winter Term or the Spring Term, you will be given the appropriate advising and registration information upon receipt of your enrollment deposit.
Fall Welcome Week
Start your fall term and academic year off the North Central way! Buy your books and supplies, find out more about clubs and organizations, connect with faculty and staff resources around campus, explore downtown Naperville, meet other new transfer students, and have fun along the way! Welcome Week includes transfer student orientation options. A one-day Fast Track orientation program is also offered. Call our Orientation Office at 630-637-5410 with questions. You can also take a look at the Transfer Orientation Guide.
If you are planning to start in the Winter Term or the Spring Term, you will be sent orientation information prior to the start of your term.
Make arrangements to have your final college or university transcripts, including any recent course work, sent to the Office of Admission at North Central before the first day of the term. If you haven't already done so, please send an official copy of your high school transcript showing date of graduation to North Central. Call your transfer admission counselor at 630-637-5800 with any transcript questions.
