You need decent grades. It's not a selective school, especially w/ transfer students.

If your grades are decent, then you can get in. They're probably less selective with transfer students.

I didn't get in out of high school, so I spent one year in college and got good grades and was accepted.

Apply early! Because the school is so large financial aid is a disaster! They are very disorganized there and it is the most unpleasant experience I have had in my years here. Go to the NIU.EDU website it is very helpful and tells you what is needed to get in here. And attend an open house! :-)

All I did was apply. In high school, I was in marching band and german club. My GPA wasn't too impressive, and my ACT was average. It's not a hard school to get into.
ACT: 25 Female
