Summer Orientation FAQs
You're not alone in having questions about North Central! The following is a list of frequently asked questions about the orientation program. If you have additional questions, please contact the Office of Orientation at 630-637-5410 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
What if I can't attend the whole summer orientation program?
If it looks like you’ll have to miss a lot of the program, contact the Orientation staff at 630-637-5410 or email@example.com to be placed in another orientation session.
Once I submit my reservation for Summer Orientation, what else do I need to do?
Just a few things—review the confirmation letter that will be sent to your personal email address and take online placement exams.
Do I need to bring any money?
No, unless you will want to stop by the bookstore or purchase something from a vending machine—all food is provided during your session. The $250 orientation fee will be reflected on your fall bill and paid through the Business Office.
If my parents attend, will they participate in the program with me?
Bring your parents! They will learn valuable information about North Central College. You and your parents will follow a separate schedule. It’s great to compare notes after the session on the way home.
What is the violence prevention training?

Do I have to take a math placement exam?
No. North Central will no longer be administering math placement exams. The Math Department will evaluate each student's ACT, SAT, and/or AP test scores, grades in high school (or previous college) math courses, intended major(s) to determine a recommendation for course work. Recommendations will be communicated during the advising process at summer orientation.
