Academic Advising
Northampton Community College

Our Academic Advisors are here to help you navigate your future.

On your educational journey at Northampton, your academic advisor is a trusted guide to help you reach your destination. Academic Advisors provide guidance for developing and achieving meaningful educational, professional, and personal goals. Throughout your time at NCC, an academic advisor will help navigate the sometimes confusing terrain of placement, pre-requisites, program requirements and transfer decisions. Academic Advisors are available to provide support via email, phone, video chat, or on-site at the Bethlehem or Pocono Campuses.


How do I find my Academic Advisor?

All students are assigned an Academic Advisor upon their acceptance to NCC. Students can find their assigned advisor's name and contact information by logging into their Workday account and clicking on the "Academics" icon. Their assigned advisor will be posted in their Support Network.


If you need additional assistance, watch this short video demonstrating how to log into Workday and where to find your assigned advisor.
