Transfer Students

Have you attended another college, taken college courses, or received college credits? You’re in the right place!

Here’s how you apply:

Step 1 — Apply

You can apply online, or complete a paper application (pdf). There’s a $25 application fee.

Step 2 — Send your high school transcript or GED scores

Submit a Transcript Request Form (pdf) to your high school counselor and they’ll send us your official transcripts. A 2.2 cumulative GPA is required for regular admission. GPAs below 2.2 can be considered for admission on a provisional basis. You’ll also send a final high school transcript after graduation.

Students who have completed the GED need to forward a copy of their scores to the Admissions Office.

You can also submit unofficial or official transcripts via email to

Step 3 — Send your ACT or SAT scores

Forward your results from either the ACT or the SAT. An ACT score of 18 or above or an SAT total score of 850 or above is required for regular admission (the written portion isn’t required).

Are your test scores a little low? You can still be considered for admission on a provisional status.

Transfer students who have not previously taken the ACT can submit the ACT Waiver Request Form (pdf). You must meet at least one of the following criteria:

  • Completed at least 24 college credits
  • Graduated high school at least 15 years ago
  • More than 30 years old

Step 4 — Send your college transcripts

Fill out your college’s transcript request form to have them mail us a copy of your transcript. Are you wondering how your college credits will transfer? Take a look at our Transfer Guides below.

North Central University Admissions Office
910 Elliot Avenue
