We are excited that you’ve chosen Northern California University. Now, you need to submit your application. Below are some simple steps that will lead you through the process.

The University promotes academic excellence through a highly selective admission process. Students who are admitted show strong personal motivation along with backgrounds of consistent academic growth and achievement. The University also attracts and seeks out socially and economically deprived students who show promise of gaining from a Northern California University’s education.

To protect its character and standards, the University reserves the right, and the applicant concedes to the University the right, to deny admission to any student at any time for any reason the University deems sufficient.

Using our Printable Application Form is a convenient way to apply for admission to NCalU and submit your material by mail. Check our admissions requirements for additional information about the application process

Applying to NCalU requires a nonrefundable application fee of $50 for California residents and US residents, and $50 for international students.

Once your application is complete, the Admissions staff will review your file to determine if you are eligible for admission.

NCalU operates on a rolling admissions basis. We strongly encourage you to apply early. Although we have no official application deadline, if you apply later in the year you may be deferred to the following term if we reach our enrollment capacity.

Congratulations on your decision to apply at Northern California University!
