Undergraduate Admissions

Frequently Asked Questions

North Park uses unweighted high school GPA on a 4.0 scale for academic scholarship consideration.

North Park will register your student for their first semester of classes. This is either done during a Registration Event or an individual registration appointment. After their initial semester, students will register for their own classes after consulting with their faculty advisor to ensure they are taking the right classes for their goals.

First-year resident students are not permitted to bring automobiles to campus. Generally, upper-class resident students are discouraged from bringing automobiles because of the lack of available parking space. Most resident students have found that there are adequate transportation options within the city so that an automobile is not necessary. 

Parking permits are required for all students who want to park on campus (commuter and resident) and can be purchased online and picked up at Student Services. More information here. 

All students can currently request a single room or live with roommates according to their preference. 

Classrooms, offices, and common areas have been assessed and reconfigured to maintain physical distancing recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

The Physical Plant team has installed virus-killing Ultraviolet or electronic air filtration devices for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) units in certain buildings on campus. Old Main, the Johnson Center, Brandel Library, Hanson Hall, Anderson Chapel, Sohlberg Hall, Magnuson Campus Center, and Health Services have the Ultraviolet systems installed.

The ultraviolet light filtration systems installed within air handling units inactivate viral, bacterial, and fungal organisms so they are unable to replicate and potentially cause disease.

In buildings where the Ultraviolet systems can’t be installed, electronic filtration devices called iMODs have been installed. These systems work by deactivating airborne pathogens such as viruses, rendering them harmless so they can no longer spread or cause infection. Carlson Tower, Carlson GYM (Lower Level and 1st Floor), Wilson Hall, and Hamming Hall have the iMODS installed.

Additionally, we have enhanced the level of particle removal within campus air systems by upgrading all our campus’ air filters to the highest allowable filtration level.
