North Central College - Naperville, IL

Transfer Student Orientation

Welcome to North Central College!

You're already a college student, but you are just beginning your journey as a Cardinal! Transfer Orientation will teach you everything you need to know to be successful at North Central College.

Transfers starting in the Fall

Because we recognize that our incoming transfer students are at different points in their academic careers, we offer two separate Orientation options.  If you are looking for a more traditional orientation program, we encourage you to come to campus on the Wednesday prior to classes starting, for our Welcome Week experience.  If you are looking for a fast-paced program that covers just the essentials, you are invited to come to Fast Track our one-day program on the Friday prior to classes starting. Beginning in July, you will receive an invitation with more details by mail and can make your selection at that time. Click here for the full  Welcome Week schedule or here for the condensed Fast Track schedule. To download the full guide to both programs click here.

Transfers starting in the Winter or Spring


Before you start classes, we hope to connect you with all of the services and resources you will need in your time here. The Winter and Spring Orientation programs will include representatives from offices across campus that are not only here to help you reach your goals but also to make sure that you can take advantage of all that North Central College has to offer.

For questions related to your orientation, please contact the Office of Orientation at (630) 637-5410 or
