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 meeting with an admission counselor to talk about North Central College and our admission process as well as a walking tour of campus with a current student tour guide. 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 meeting with an admission counselor and your campus tour with a current student 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.
  • Admission meeting rooms and surfaces will be sanitized following each visitor.
  • Not all campus buildings will be accessible due to employees working remotely. 

Day-Time Visits

We offer visits between 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.


Individualized campus visits during the day are open to freshman and transfer students. These visits include a meeting with an Admission Counselor and/or a walking tour of campus with a current student tour guide. Transfer students will receive an unofficial evaluation of transfer credit if transcripts are provided. If you are interested in meeting with a faculty member, athletic coach and/or observing a class, we request 4-5 business days notice.
