What are the admission requirements to enroll with NCU?

Undergraduate Admission Requirements

We accept new students each month (beginning in January 2019). We do not require the MAT, GRE, or similar graduate entrance exams because those tests measure what you have already learned rather than your capacity to learn new things, problem solve, and persist with challenging tasks.

  • Successful completion of the High School Diploma or equivalent, such as GED.
  • English Language ability TOEFL, IELTS, or equivalent test score for non-native English speakers.
  • Copy of a valid government issued ID required for identity verification
  • Official transcripts from High school and all previously attended colleges or universities

Graduate Admission Requirements

  • Completion of a baccalaureate degree from an appropriately accredited institution.
  • Official transcripts from all previously attended colleges or universities.
  • English Language ability, such as TOEFL, IELTS, or equivalent test score for non-native English speakers.
  • Copy of a valid government issued ID required for identity verification

International Students

International students interested in earning their degree with NCU follow the same two-step admissions process by filling in the online application.

Instruction at NCU is provided in English, and the University does not provide English as a Second Language services. Applicants for whom English is a second language must take the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL®) and have their official TOEFL® score report sent to the Office of Registrar under separate cover. Alternatives to the TOEFL, such as IELTS are acceptable. See the school catalog for details.

  • Applicants must receive a TOEFL score of 500 on the paper-based test or 61 on the Internet-Based test (IBT).
  • Alternatively, an applicant may enroll in the University’s EN111 Composition I course online as a non-degree student. The University will accept a grade of C or better as proof of English proficiency in lieu of the TOEFL score.

Applicants with transcripts not in English must be evaluated by an appropriate third party and translated into English or evaluated by a trained transcript evaluator fluent in the language on the transcript. In this case, the evaluator must have expertise in the educational practices of the country of origin and include an English translation of the review.

International students who do not have US government photo identification will need to produce two forms of alternative photo identification during proctored examinations in order to verify identity. International students must also pay a one-time registration fee of $200.00
