Countdown to Commencement

As you are likely aware, North Central College has made significant changes to the remainder of the 2019-2020 academic year with the goal of minimizing the public health risk to the campus community as it relates to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. Those changes include the suspension of in-person undergraduate classes through the end of spring semester, and, sadly, canceling our 2020 Commencement ceremony and related events. In the coming days, we will evaluate our options for celebrating the scholarly achievements of our students and the Class of 2020, and will communicate accordingly. Please visit the College’s website ( for additional information, resources, and a continually evolving list of FAQs.

The deadline to order caps and gowns has passed. To order you must visit the campus store or call them at (630) 637-5635 with any questions regarding caps and gowns.
