We’re here for you in this uncertain season

In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, we have had to make changes to our campus visit events and more:

  • We are offering virtual visits
  • We are still processing your applications and helping you start your future at NCU
  • Our counselors are still available via email and will return any of your voicemails with a personal call. Our main admissions line is also available.
  • All in-person campus visits are canceled

Despite all of the uncertainty in the world around you, we are committed to making your journey to North Central smooth and stress-free. We’re continuing to pray for you as you navigate your college decision.

Campus visits (currently unavailable)

Nothing will give you the feel for a college campus like visiting. And many North Central students say that it was their visit to our Minneapolis campus that helped them to see that North Central was the right fit.

There’s an energy here—you’ll feel it the moment you walk into Chapel and witness hundreds of students “on fire” for God. You’ll see it in the faces of NCU professors, men and women of tremendous wisdom and dedication who are passionate about Christ-centered learning.
