It's crucial to your success to meet with your Academic Advisor at least once a semester - no later than two months after classes start. Students who meet with an advisor at least once a semester are more likely to complete their degree on time. Meeting with an advisor allows students to ask questions about your semester, express any concerns you may have, and start planning for the next term. They can also help you explore careers or majors.
Remember, it's your responsibility to make contact with your Academic Advisor!
Contact the Advising Center at 619-4324

Even your first semester at NWACC is not too soon to begin the transfer planning process!
