Individual Campus Visit


Find the right fit!


One of the best ways to determine whether North Central College is the right fit for you is to visit. There are many ways to experience Cardinal life, and we look forward to arranging your time on campus. 

Your visit will include a walking tour of campus with a current student tour guide and/or a meeting with an Admission Counselor.  If you prefer, we encourage you to contact your admission counselor to arrange for a virtual meeting. We're following these CDC guidelines to ensure everyone's safety. Thank you for your attention to these guidelines and for your assistance in upholding these important measures:

  • Your campus tour with a current student and/or meeting with a counselor will be conducted in a manner that adheres to social distancing guidelines.
  • Masks that cover your nose and mouth are required for the duration of your visit. We ask that you practice good hygiene.
  • Please limit visitors to the prospective student and parents/guardians.
  • If you or your parent/guardian are experiencing any symptoms consistent with COVID-19, including but not limited to a fever, cough, shortness of breath, muscle aches or have encountered a suspected or confirmed individual with COVID-19 within the last 14 days, please wait to schedule your visit.
  • Not all campus buildings will be accessible due to employees working remotely. 

Day-Time Visits

We offer visits between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.


Individualized campus tours during the day are open to freshman and transfer students. These visits include a walking tour of campus with a current student tour guide and/or a meeting with an Admission Counselor.  

A campus tour is roughly an hour long.  Meeting with an Admission Counselor is about 30 minutes for incoming freshman students and about an hour for incoming transfer students if they would like an unofficial transcript evaluation.

Virtual tours of all Residence Halls can be viewed here.
