Registration Virtual Walk-Ins

Registration for spring semester beings April 5th!  Most advisors are currently booked through registration week, but as always, the AAC will hold “walk-ins” on a first-come-first serve basis, but the waitlist queue will be managed through a virtual platform. Beginning at 8AM each day (April 5th - April 9th), you can add yourself to the queue for a walk-in by clicking on the following link that aligns with your major. 

Please note, these links will not be active until April 5th:

Liberal Arts (non-STEM)

STEM Students (Pre-Nursing, Biology, Math, Environmental Resource Science

Pre-Education and Pre-Speech Pathology

Once the queue reaches maximum capacity for each day, it will be closed until the following day at 8AM.  When the queue has closed, you will no longer see a blue "Join Waitlist" button.  To ensure that you get the most out of your phone appointment please be signed into a computer and have access to the internet, so that you and your Advisor can review documents together. If you miss the Advisor’s first call, they will attempt to leave you a voice message to let you know they will try calling again in a few minutes.  If you miss the Advisor’s second call, you may be removed from the queue.


Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Academic Advising Center will be serving students via telephone only until further notice. Appointments are currently available, and information on scheduling can be found here.

The Academic Advising Center works collaboratively with students to develop achievable educational and career plans through a commitment and understanding of the Nevada State College curriculum. Academic Advisors empower students to take ownership of their degree while working together to create a realistic pathway to graduation.  - Academic Advising Center Mission Statement

The Academic Advising Center is a dedicated team of Advisors committed to your academic success at NSC. By providing the right advice and guidance, we help students meet their educational and personal objectives. Academic Advisors work with all students who need assistance navigating their time at Nevada State. Any student who has earned less than 60 credits will be assigned to an advising "team" based on your declared major. NSC operates under a 60+ advising model. If you have earned more than 60 credits, you will be advised by a faculty advisor from the College which you are majoring in. 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. Call us today at 702.992.2160 to start or continue the conversation about your path to a fulfilling future!
