Faxed copies will NOT be accepted from either high schools or higher education institutions.

Returning students are those who have previously attended North Central Missouri College (not including dual credit). If the student has attended other institutions, official transcripts from each institution will be required.

Transfer Student

Transfer students are those with any post-high college credit. Students must complete and submit a North Central Missouri College application for admission online or by paper form. Students must also submit an official transcript from their high school and all prior institutions; however, if an associate’s or bachelor’s degree has been earned, the high school transcript requirement is waived.

International Student

An international student is one who is lawfully present, but not a United States citizen or permanent resident. An international student must submit both an application for admission and a copy of their passport. The student must also provide high school and college transcripts, translated in to English. An official evaluation of college transcripts from a U.S. accredited, foreign transcript evaluation service must be submitted by the student before credit will be considered for transfer to NCMC. One such service is World Education Services (WES). If the student’s official national language is not English, they will also need to provide a TOEFL or Duolingo English Test score. A letter of financial support and a bank statement will also be necessary prior to an I-20 being issued.

*Students with a permanent resident card (green card) are not considered international students and will need to follow domestic guidelines. Please see first-time freshman/transfer/or visiting student policies.

Visiting Student

A visiting student is one who is also attending another accredited college or university. In order to be eligible, students must provide an official transcript from their current institution. Please note: If courses needed to meet a prerequisite requirement were taken at an institution other than the current institution, the student will also need to provide an official transcript from that institution. (High school transcripts are not required.) Transcripts will be evaluated for prerequisite purposes only. The visiting student is responsible for making certain that a course taken at NCMC is not a repeat of a course previously completed at another institution. If required to meet a prerequisite, official placement scores (i.e. ACT, Accuplacer) from within the past three years will also be required. These students must complete the application for admission online or by paper form.

Visiting/non-degree students are ineligible to receive the A+ Scholarship, Title IV Federal Aid, Missouri State Aid, and may be ineligible for other types of financial aid

Financial Aid/A+ scholarship students: Please follow the transfer student guidelines.

*If a visiting student becomes a degree-seeking student with NCMC in the future, they will be required to follow the transfer student guidelines

Early College

NCMC’s Early College Program is a great way for motivated high school students to get a head start on earning college credit at a deeply discounted tuition rate prior to high school graduation. Early College students can enroll in NCMC’s college courses for a discounted tuition rate of $100 per credit hour.

What are the Eligibility Requirements to be an Early College Student?

Students in the 11th and 12th grades must have an overall minimum grade point average of  2.5 (on a 4.0 scale).
Students in the 10th grade must have an overall minimum grade point average of  3.0 (on a 4.0 scale).
Students in the 9th grade must have an overall minimum grade point average of 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale) and score at the 90th percentile or above on the ACT or SAT.

High school students must also meet the same requirements for admission to individual courses (e.g., English or mathematics) as those required of on-campus students (e.g., ACT, ASSET, COMPASS, PLAN, or other placement test scores).
