At North Central, we believe that it’s our purpose to prepare every student for success. This commitment doesn’t end when you leave NCU. Your life is our mission, even after you graduate. So we’re constantly looking for ways to serve our alumni community.

Who are our alumni? We consider all those who have completed at least 12 credits at North Central University or North Central Bible College to be alumni of this community.

Here are some of the benefits of being a North Central alum!

Debt retirement (for ministry graduates)

The AG Trust has set up a grant for graduates of AG schools that can assist them in the repayment of their student loans. The grant is specifically for alumni who are currently in or entering full-time ministry. Applicants must have graduated in 2007 or later. Get the AG Next Generation Grant Application (pdf).

Complete your degree with Pathways

The NCU Pathways program is a degree completion program focused on students who have been away from North Central for more than 5 years. This program works with our Registrar’s office and Dean’s Council to create an efficient, highly discounted pathway toward graduation.

Free parking

Need a place to park downtown? As a courtesy to our alumni, NCU invites our alumni to park on campus during the weekends and evenings after 5:00 PM. We only ask that you call the Security office at 612.343.4445 to confirm parking availability and location.

Please note that alumni may not leave their cars on campus overnight.

Résumé and cover letter review

Are you in transition between jobs, or thinking about making a change? Contact our Career Services department at We’ll review your résumé and cover letter, and offer basic career counseling and complete access to CareerWire, our web-based career placement assistance program.

Library access

Alumni have lifetime Guest Patron access to T. J. Jones Library. Our library is a place where alumni may continue their personal and intellectual growth throughout their lives.

Alumni communities

Want to connect with alumni in your field of expertise? Alumni have formed online communities that gather around specific disciplines or common interests. Many of these groups host events and activities that bless and connect community members. Here’s a list of Facebook groups:

Cultivating a spirit of worship through prayer and praise has always been central to our community. As lifetime members of this community, you have a standing invitation to join us in daily prayer, praise, and worship at Chapel.

Estate planning (no charge for will and trust drafting)

It’s always a good time to ensure that your final affairs are in order. However, the cost of creating a will or trust can often be prohibitive. Thankfully, this is not the case for NCU alumni. In partnership with AG Financial Services, NCU is able to provide will and trust drafting free of charge for every alumnus or alumna who includes a tithe (10% donation) in their will to NCU or another charity. Contact us to learn more about the host of financial solutions we provide for alumni.
