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.
