More about me:

Favorite thing about North Central: The sense of community and the vast number of opportunities, especially those that allow students to interact with faculty both in and out of the classroom on a consistent basis. People here really care about you and get involved in your experience . . . and work hard to find many different ways to help you get where you want to go.

Words I use to describe North Central students: Friendly, involved, and interested/interesting

Why did I choose to become an admission counselor/staff member at North Central? Every time I met with anyone on campus, I became more and more excited about this place; the people are so genuine and welcoming, and the College is constantly growing and changing.  I realized how special it is and wanted to become part of it.

Favorite Naperville Restaurant: It’s a three-way tie between Meson Sabika, On the Border, and The Melting Pot, but I love the overall variety - especially trying cuisines from around the world.

Favorite Season in Naperville: While fall weather is usually great around here and the trees are beautiful, I love summer in Naperville.  There’s so much to do outside.

Advice to Students: Use our online Course Substitution Guides to assist you in determining which courses may transfer . . . and then schedule an individual planning meeting on campus with a transfer admission counselor to get an unofficial transcript evaluation.  At that time I also encourage taking a campus tour, meeting with a faculty member, and maybe even sitting in on a class.  Be sure to allow us to lead you through the scholarship and financial aid processes.  And keep in touch!  We can help make this the most clear, effective and stress-free process possible.  


Our next traditional start term possibility, Winter Term 2017, begins Tuesday, January 3rd.  For full admission, financial aid and registration consideration, there is a target date of Friday, December 9th for Winter Term file completion.  If you cannot complete your file by this date, call our office at 630-637-5800 to discuss your situation.  We are also currently admitting students for our Spring Term 2017 (Mar. 27th start) and will start admitting students for Fall Term 2017 in early October.
