Welcome, families!

Congratulations! You’ve reached a huge milestone in your life—and your student has, too. We understand that college is an exciting time for families—and often a stressful time, too. Rest assured that you and your family are in good hands with North Central.


Our Community

We put our students at the center of all that we do. We challenge them to grow and push themselves while also offering them uncommon levels of support and personal attention. They’ll receive this from every imaginable source—professors and classmates, resident assistants and academic advisors, coaches and administrative assistants—the entire College community.

Our Support System

Students also have access to medical services and counseling at Dyson Wellness Center. Our campus safety team has a close working relationship with the police and fire departments of Naperville, a town that’s consistently ranked among the safest in America. And we host a robust  program, an innovative national social movement that works to make communities intolerant of power-based personal violence. Your family is our family, and we will support you in every way we can.
