Not hard. Directly admitted into the school and nursing program with a 28 on my ACT and a 3.3 GPA. I recommend doing well on that ACT!

I was a transfer. I just applied to get into the University. COMS department was not hard to get into. As long as you have above a 2.5 gpa and more than 30 credits your pretty much in, just like the other comments say. NIU lost a lot of students after they had the shooting so they seem desperate.

I was a transfer student from a cc, and all you have to do is have 30 transferable credits with 2.5 gpa or higher and your in.
