We recommend scheduling in-person visits to maximize our impact and your time. Phone appointments are also an option, but must be scheduled in advance during our regular appointment times.

ADVISING HOLDS

Regular interactions with an Academic Advisor has proven to increase graduation rates and satisfaction with a students' college experience. Because of this, NSC requires all Freshman meet with an Advisor prior to registration each semester. An advising hold (RO1) is placed on each students account preventing them from registering until they have met with advisor. Please plan to meet with your Advisor sometime between weeks 8-12 each semester.

NOTE: Beginning Fall 2018, all students who have earned less than 60 credits AND all Pre-Education students will be required to meet with an Advisor prior to registration. 

 

DEGREE PLANNING

If you fail to plan, you plan to fail. Benjamin Franklin

Each school has created degree planning tools to help students plan their way to graduation. Advisors are here to help advise you along the way. While Advisors will not choose classes for you or enroll you into classes, we are more than happy to offer suggestions, give you insight, and help you understand how to use these tools to stay on track towards the completion of your degree.

Most majors/programs have degree worksheets that list requirements to complete the program. Some requirements have prescribed or specific courses that you have to take, while other requirements provide a list of options. You may find the 2017-18 degree sheets located outside of the Academic Advising Center, if you need prior catalog years, please visit with your Academic Advisor.
