Academic Calendar

The academic calendar at North Central College consists of three 10-week terms, a three-week D-Term, an eight-week summer session or consecutive four-week summer sessions. Students normally take three to four courses during each 10-week term to concentrate on fewer subjects. D-Term may be devoted to special study opportunities, selected courses in areas such as leadership development, travel opportunities sponsored by the College, independent study projects or employment.

North Central College will transition to a 16-week semester calendar in August 2019. For dates of the semester calendar, see the 2019–2020 Semester Calendar at the bottom of this page.
