Favorite thing about North Central:  The faculty and administration truly care about all of the students.

Words I use to describe North Central students: Driven to succeed.

Why did I choose to become an admission counselor/staff member at North Central?   I loved my small school experience and I see the same opportunities for students looking at North Central. This career allows me to help others realize the advantages of developing personal relationships with faculty & administration. (And the location is amazing!)

Favorite Naperville Restaurant:  Lou Malnatti's

Favorite Season in Naperville: Summer

Advice to Students: Sit in the front row, engage with the faculty, learn something new everyday.


Consider attending one of our Transfer Visit Programs.

You can always arrange an individual campus visit to meet with a counselor, get an unofficial evaluation of your transcripts, and take a tour of our campus in Naperville's Historic District. Simply call our office at 630-637-5800. Be sure to bring copies of your transcripts to review!

Follow Transfer admission on Twitter and Facebook, and check out the College’s web communities page since there are lots of things going on all over campus throughout the year.

Winter Term begins Monday, January 6, 2014.

If you cannot complete the admission process before this date, call 630-637-5800 to speak with a transfer counselor about our Spring Term in March 2014.
