Undergraduate application requirements

We keep our application and admissions process as straightforward as possible, so nothing stands in the way of your future at North Central.

To get you started, here are a few admissions requirements:

  • A completed Application Form
  • $25 application fee
  • High school transcript with a minimum GPA of 2.2*
  • Joining our Christian community—North Central is a community of passionate Christ-followers who are dedicated to growing in their faith. To help make that possible, we all strive to live by biblical standards and agree to responsibilities of membership.

*If your GPA or test scores are a little low, you can still earn provisional admission.


NCU is a Test Score Optional institution. NCU is waiving the applicant’s test score requirement for students with a high school GPA of 2.5 or above. Students with a GED or a high school GPA lower than 2.5 must submit a test score or an academic essay for admittance consideration. Talk to an admissions counselor to learn more.

Potential requirements for test score submission:

  • Academic related scholarship competitions (Regent’s Scholarship)
  • International student consideration
  • Potential athletic eligibility requirements

Students who have a current ACT or SAT test score may request to have their scholarship amount reevaluated with their test score considered. NCU will reevaluate the academic scholarship with a test score included. The student will receive the highest possible academic scholarship.
