One of the best ways to determine whether North Central College is the right fit for you is to visit. Whether you’re an admitted student looking to discuss questions surrounding your final decision, an applicant with questions about completing your application, or a prospective student just starting your college search, our counselors are ready to assist you and your family. We have limited in-person options and several virtual options.
Masks are no longer required outdoors regardless of vaccination status. Fully vaccinated individuals are not required to wear masks indoors. It is strongly recommended that non-vaccinated individuals continue to wear masks indoors. Important: North Central College will continue to be a “mask-friendly” environment. The wearing of a mask should not be considered an indication of vaccination status. It is expected that all members of the campus community respect an individual’s decision to wear a mask on campus.
