Arrival time

New incoming students and their families should plan to arrive at North Central for check-in according to their assigned time on January 7, 2019.   Check-in will take place in the Word and Worship Center’s Lower Atrium.

Park in any of the available lots across campus when you arrive.  If you or your student is moving in, you will be directed to move your car to the appropriate building after check-in is complete.

If your family has extenuating circumstances that would merit missing check-in, please contact the Student Development Office with this information (studlife@northcentral.edu).
