Advising and Orientation

Once you complete the Admissions process at NSCC, you will be assigned a faculty advisor in your declared major. Your faculty advisor can help you clarify academic, career, and long-term goals, and provide academic guidance through the registration process. Some departments hold group-advising sessions for informational purposes.
