Walk-In Queue

As always, the Academic Advising Center will be offering “walk-ins” during registration week for summer and fall semester. Walk-ins can be offered in person or via phone, on a first-come-first serve basis. However, those physically present in the Academic Advising Center will be given first priority. The waitlist queue will be managed through a virtual platform (linked below). Beginning at 8AM each day (March 27th – March 31st), 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 March 27th:




Criminal Justice

Deaf Studies



Environmental Resource Science

Human Health Sciences


Interdisciplinary Studies





Speech Pathology

Visual Media


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. If you choose to have a phone appointment, 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.


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

For more information about the Academic Advising Center, including what guides our vision for Nevada State Advising, Student Learning Outcomes, Advisor/Advisee Responsibilities, and the Global Values of Advising Practices, please review our 2022-2023 Advising Syllabus.

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 fully centralized advising model. All students are advised out of the Academic Advising Center, unless you are admitted to the School of Education or School of Nursing program. 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!
