Airport Pick-Up

Due to COVID-19, Airport pick-up has been temporarily suspended. Students must self transport to campus on the day they arrive. We recommend using a ride share service, such as Uber.

All orientations will be virtual.

Please submit your full itinerary including all layovers, flight numbers, times, carriers and any other important information by sending an email to Paige Dean. There are many terminals at O'Hare International Airport, please keep us informed of any changes. 

It is important that you try to arrive between 10 AM and 3 PM on any of the designated airport pick-up days mentioned above. The Center for Global Education staff will be doing airport runs and meeting you at the baggage claim area of terminal 5 (International arrivals). If O'Hare International Airport in Chicago was NOT your original port of entry and you are arriving at O'Hare from a connecting U.S. flight, please make your way to the ARRIVALS area of Terminal 5 International.

A staff member from the Center for Global Education will be there to meet you holding a RED North Central College sign. Become familiar with our faces!
