Provide Transcripts

Mail transcripts to:
Office of Admission
North Central State College
2441 Kenwood Circle
Mansfield, OH 44906

High School Graduates/GED: Submit your official high school transcript or GED certificate with score report.
College Transcript Processing: Students can submit official transcripts from all previously attended colleges and universities. Transfer credit will be evaluated and the results mailed to you. Make sure to send all prior college or university transcripts well before the start of the term to allow for processing time.

Placement Testing

The Accuplacer placement test helps indicate if a student can start directly into one of our fully online programs or would need to first take remedial coursework on campus. Testing is required for students who do not have current ACT or prior placement test scores indicating a college-ready status. Transfer students should self-identify, as placement testing may not be necessary. For additional information, including needed test scores, self-study guides, and location options (other colleges near you or possibly in your own home), please contact Testing Services at 419-755-4736.

Attend Orientation

This web-based tutorial will highlight available resources, college expectations, important deadlines, online course structure, as well as general information about being an online student. Your Student Success Champion will provide further information about completing this step.

Register for Classes

Once you have completed Orientation, you will work with your Student Success Champion to finalize your academic plan and register for courses.

Throughout this process, you will have a Student Success Champion who will help further explain the steps above so you will know exactly what you need to do. Once you have applied, feel free to contact onlineadvising@ncstatecollege.edu or 419-755-4765.
