Individual Campus Visit

Important Update:

All campus visits are currently suspended in response to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak. We anticipate offering visit opportunities again mid-May and encourage you to check back with us. For more information on the College's response to COVID-19, please find campus updates and a helpful FAQ section at

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. 

Day-Time Visits

We offer start times of 9:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 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.

*Visit start times aside from these standard options can be arranged with your admission counselor for special circumstances.
