Academic and faculty advisors are here to help you navigate academic programs and resources at NSCC. Advisors specialize in serving students by:

  • Developing a pathway to graduation that fits with your lifestyle and work schedule
  • Reviewing program requirements and course recommendations
  • Listening to student concerns and providing direction to resources
  • Providing a connection to transfer and career options

There are two types of advisors at NSCC.

Academic advisors assist students in the first 15 credit hours of the degree or certificate program. An academic plan will be developed using DegreeWorks. DegreeWorks is a web-based planning tool to help students and advisors monitor student’s progress toward degree completion. DegreeWorks provides a more accessible way for students to know where they are academically and how they can plan the rest of their college careers. The academic advisor will also walk the student through myNSCC to register for classes. myNSCC is a campus web portal that provides students with centralized access to campus resources.

Faculty advisors assist students that are beyond 15 credit hours in the degree or certificate program. Faculty advisors provide advice and support for program specific topics, such as, transfer options and career paths within the discipline.
