What is an Academic Advisor?

Academic advisors provide guidance for developing and achieving meaningful educational, professional, and personal goals. Throughout your educational journey at NCC an academic advisor will help navigate the sometimes confusing terrain of placement, pre-requisites, program requirements and transfer decisions.  However after consultation with an academic advisor, it is ultimately the student's responsibility to choose and implement his/her academic program and to see that all specific requirements for that program and all general requirements for graduation from the College have been met in an acceptable and timely manner.

How do I get an Advisor?

After their initial registration, full time students (anyone carrying at least 12 credits or more) are assigned an advisor based on their expressed academic interest.  In subsequent semesters all full time students will need to speak with their assigned advisor to plan courses towards completion of their desired program. 

Part-time students are not assigned an advisor, however they can request an advisor or consult with advisors in the Advising Office at the Bethlehem and Monroe campuses.

How do I find my academic advisor?

Students will find their assigned advisor's name and contact information by login into their MyNCC account and clicking the "My Academic Information" tab. The assignments are made several weeks into their first semester.
