Course Substitution Guides

If you're planning to transfer to North Central College and attend an Illinois community college, our course substitution guides will assist you in selecting courses at your local community college. Working with your current academic advisor, use your guide to determine which courses meet North Central’s requirements in the core curriculum, academic major and minor requirements, and electives. Review our transfer credit policy as well as options for credit by examination.

You can find out how your courses will transfer by:

  • Scheduling a campus visit to meet with your transfer admission counselor for an unofficial transcript evaluation. Call 630-637-5800.
