North Central College - Naperville, IL

Parents and Families

At North Central, your family is our family.

We know that parents play a key role in a student's success, from the very first campus visit to the celebration at Commencement. We want you to be fully equipped to support your student on his or her college journey—and to enjoy the journey yourself!

We’ve provided resources to help you navigate the academic, financial and health aspects of college, along with information on staying connected, visiting campus and supporting your student through the transition process. We hope to see you on campus for Homecoming and Family Weekend in the fall and at many of our athletic and fine arts events through the year.

Welcome to the family!
