COB (Continuous Open Bidding) will begin immediately upon conclusion of Primary Recruitment. COB will not be permitted until Primary Recruitment concludes. In line with NPC’s new guidelines, first-year students are eligible to receive COB’s AFTER Primary Recruitment concludes on October 5, 2020.


A Contingency Plan for Hurricane evacuation is still being developed. Most likely scenario for significant disruption to campus would be a January Primary Recruitment, and COB beginning on October 1, 2020, and including first-year women.

We are choosing to remain optimistic during these unprecedented times. Please direct any comments, questions, or concerns HERE.
