Current, Returning, and Visiting NWACC students now have a choice of scheduling a Skype advising session using Skype for Business (different than regular Skype). Best of all, all NWACC students already have a Skype for Business account so there is no need to create a new account - you simply log-in using your existing myNWACC Connection username and password.
Skype advising will allow you and your advisor can review documents such as degree audits, navigate online resources, and screen and document share.This mode of advising is great if you are live far from campus or unable to come to campus yet still meet with an advisor.
If you choose to schedule a Skype appointment, please make sure you meet the following requirements:
Is Skype and Skype for Business different?
Yes. At this time we only offer appointment through Skype for Business. You will not be able to contact your advisor with regular Skype. All NWACC students already have a Skype for Business account included in their Office 365 subscription (provided to all NWACC students) and can login to the software using their myNWACC Connection username and password. The software can be downloaded free (see below).
