 Academic Advising

Academic advising helps students make effective decisions about their degree and career goals.

Your Academic Advisor will work with you as long as you are at NWTC. Advisors can answer your questions, help you plan and problem-solve, direct you to helpful resources--like study help for those tough classes--and help you get the most from your education.

Located within Blackboard, you’ll find Starfish
