There are music scholarshipsFeb 22 2016Unknown
There are music scholarships. You have to interview with the faculty, which is not difficult. There are some dates, which you have to carefully plan ahead, where you can do an audition. I also had good AP grades, so that also helped me. The admission part is not that hard, they are willing to help incoming or prospective students. In the tour they showed me the theatre and show venues, especially the Wentz Concert Hall.

I worked extremely hard at my community college andDec 03 2014Political Science
I worked extremely hard at my community college and transferred with a 3.8, and my GPA has only taken a nose dive ever since transferring. I would recommend that other students who are interested in a liberal arts college, not consider North Central because there are other great liberal arts colleges that actually care about students' success.
