Congratulations on being accepted to North Central!
Ready to pay your enrollment deposit?
We can’t wait for you to join our tight-knit community of committed, passionate Christ-followers. Here are a few steps you can take to save your spot at North Central and be prepared when you get to campus.
Step 1 – Set up your Skyline account
Now that you’ve been accepted to NCU, you have access to information that’s exclusively for our internal community.
How to Login
First, visit setup.northcentral.edu. When prompted, look in the registration information packet for your one-time setup code to connect with your account and create your password
Once logged into skyline, you will see a link to your NCU email on the upper right corner of the page. All communication about finances and awards will be sent to this email address. Your student email address will be sent to you in your registration packet.
Step 2 – Get your finances ready ASAP
Go to fafsa.ed.gov to complete your Free Application for Federal Student Aid as soon as possible.
Learn more about the steps for applying for aid and accepting your awards.
Step 3 – Apply for housing ASAP
After you’re accepted, you’ll need to tell us your plans for housing during the semester. This includes applying to live in the dorms, campus apartments, or off-campus as a commuter. Check out your housing options.
Use these forms to apply for housing:
You’ll need your student username and password in order to apply for housing. This information is sent on a postcard that is enclosed in your acceptance letter. If you lost or forgot your login info, feel free to contact your Admissions Counselor.
All housing is assigned on a first-come, first-serve basis, so we recommend that you apply for housing right after you’re accepted.
If you are planning on living in the dorms on campus, you will need to set up your meal plan as well. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are Monday through Friday. Brunch and dinner are served on Saturday, and a dinner is served on Sunday.
Meal plan options:
- 18 meals per week – $1,610 per semester
- 14 meals per week – $1,550 per semester
- 10 meals per week – $1,450 per semester
- 7 meals per week – $1,300 per semester
*Meal plan costs are based on the 2017-2018 school year and will not be finalized until Spring 2018 for the 2018-19 school year.

Step 4 – Register for classes by June 15
Use your NCU username and password (found in your registration packet) to register for classes on Skyline. Class registration for new students will open in either April or May depending on your class standing. Here are some resources to help you register:
*For important academic dates, download our academic calendar.
Step 5 – Attend summer orientation on June 14 or June 21
Summer orientation is required for all new students. Join us on campus, June 14 or June 21 to take care of the next steps toward your time as a student at NCU.
Register for your summer orientation before June 1 .
Step 6 – Create your financial plan by June
Your billing statement will be sent to you in early June. This is a great time to put together a financial plan for how you will pay your student bill in your first year, and until you graduate.
Payment of your student bill is due August 15.
*If you have any questions, give your admissions counselor a call at 800.289.6222 or 612.343.4460 and they will be happy to help.
Step 7 – Apply for parking (optional)
Parking runs on a first come, first served basis. Therefore, if you plan on bringing a car you will want to take care of this as early as possible.
- Student resident on-campus parking, available for $295/semester
- Student non-resident commuter/PSEO parking, available for $75/semester
- Student motorcycle parking, available for $175/semester
- Bicycle parking, available for purchase in the security office for $15/school year. All bikes must have a bike lock.
- Student resident Minneapolis street parking, available for $25 for an August to August permit (issues by the city of Minneapolis, moderated by NCU).
Step 8 – Complete and submit your immunization form by July 31
Minnesota Law (M.S. 135A.14) requires proof that all students born after 1956 are vaccinated against diphtheria, tetanus, measles, mumps, and rubella. The Immunization form (pdf) must be completed and signed prior to beginning your first semester at NCU.
The form is very simple. Just write your name at the top and then fill out Part one if you are from MN, fill out Part two if you are transferring, or fill out Part three if you graduated from high school in a state other than MN. There is no need for a doctor’s signature unless you want to file a medical exemption. Once you have finished, simply bring your form to your Summer orientation day.
Step 9 – Submit your final high school transcripts by July 1
After you have graduated from high school, you must send North Central your official high school transcript. It must include your final grades and graduation date.
*Talk to your high school counselor about having an official transcript sent to NCU, or use our official transcript request form.
Step 10 – Get ready for welcome week!
Welcome Week is your official start to your life at North Central. We’ll welcome you to campus, help you get settled, and introduce you to our community. We can’t wait to see you!
