North Central College - Naperville, IL

International Student Services

Greetings and welcome to the North Central College (NCC) family! As you begin your personal and educational exploration here you will find a safe and welcoming environment that values the perspectives of differing backgrounds and viewpoints. We are excited that you have chosen NCC as the place for you to learn more about yourself, the world and your role in it.

The Office of International programs (OIP) is here to assist you in all aspects of your adjustment to living and studying in the United States.  We can help you with questions about academics, immigration procedures and regulations, housing, employment and community life. Make sure to take advantage of our International Student Handbook to prepare you for your upcoming experience at NCC. We also have an active International Club that organizes several events throughout the year in addition to those hosted by the OIP.  There are a variety of highlighted events and activities throughout each term inlcuding the highly anticipated International Festival, every winter term, where the many cultures represented on campus and in the community have the opportunity to present their culture through food and various types of entertainment.

To better prepare for your upcoming experience at North Central College, please check out our pre-arrival orientation at
