Contact an admissions counselor if that's you.
     
    • *Test Score Optional for Fall 2021 PSEO Applicants: To assist students whose test dates were cancelled due to COVID-19, here is the test optional policy:

      Students who have a homeschool transcript are required to submit an academic essay, any Pre-ACT or PSAT standardized test scores, or the CLT test score (Currently being proctored virtually)  Talk to an admissions counselor to learn more.

      For the essay requirements, students must submit the following: 

      • Submit an Academic Essay answering the following question: What do you feel is your greatest academic accomplishment and how will this achievement launch you into a successful academic career at NCU?
      • The essay should be at least one page, double spaced, and no longer than three pages.
      • The student must write the paper on their own and it should not be edited by anyone other than the student. The purpose of this essay is to consider the student's academic ability through writing and we ask that parents, guardians, siblings, teachers, tutors, or any other person to not edit the essay on behalf of the student.
      • Essays can be emailed directly to the online admissions counselor.

  • Fill out the State of MN (MDE) PSEO form and mail to North Central University (see downloads box).
  • Wait to hear from North Central for acceptance.  They may ask you to come in for an interview.  When they contact you, tell them that you are enrolling in a class at CHAT.
  • After acceptance, register for the PSEO class with CHAT.  CHAT will notify NCU of your enrollment.  You do NOT register for this class through North Central.  (This is different than the Crown process.)
