Experience the North Central College community

Dreamt about going to pharmacy school in Illinois or attending a PA program in the Chicago area? You're in luck? North Central College will host a variety of visit day opportunities on campus for freshman, first-generation and transfer students. These events are open to prospective students looking to broaden their horizons at one of the top regional colleges in the Midwest.

Freshman Visit Days

During their visit, prospective students learn from faculty and staff about student life and academic opportunities. They also learn more about the admission process and financial aid before embarking on tours around the 68.5-acre North Central campus, surrounded by the beautiful landscape of Naperville’s historic district.

First-generation Visit Days

First-generation visit days are specifically designed for prospective first-generation college students, which are defined as students without a parent who has a four-year college degree. Students will meet Cardinal First program mentors and learn how North Central will support them throughout their journey at the College. The visit day program includes an informative presentation followed by lunch with current first-gen students, and concludes with a campus tour.

Transfer Information Sessions

Transfer information sessions cater to prospective transfer students interested in learning more about how and when to apply, financial aid, scholarships, classes, transferring credits, and more. These sessions also offer the opportunity for an unofficial transcript evaluation or on-the-spot admission decision. Both are conducted on a first-come, first-serve basis during the session and require a completed application and all transcripts.
