We think that visiting a college campus is one of the most important parts of the Admissions Process. If you visit NCU, which includes attending Preview Day or a personalized campus visit, you will qualify for a $500 scholarship that will be applied towards your first-year tuition.

(To qualify for this scholarship your visit will need to be completed by the first Friday in May of the intended enrollment year.)
