Connecting to NCU Wi-Fi - Android Devices

This article will detail how to connect your Android mobile device to North Central Wi-Fi. Some Android Devices are unable to automatically receive the certificate to connect to the network, so we must download and provision the certificate onto your device. If you connect without the certificate, then you data is not private and at risk to anyone connected to the network. 

Connecting your Android device to North Central Wi-Fi

1. Navigate to your phone's settings then WiFi settings. 

2. Select NCU-Secure from the list

3. Under CA Certificate: Select Use System Certificates

4. Under Online Certificate Status select Request Certificate Status.

     - Skip this step if this option doesn't appear for you.

5. Enter as the domain.

6. Enter your NCU Username under Identity 

     - Use just the username, not the full email address (i.e aaron.devall or addevall)

7. Enter your password under Password. 

8. Select Connect.


You should be connected to the network. If it fails to connect, ensure that you have entered the correct password. If it continues to fail either continue with the steps below, or stop by the IT Service Desk.
