Fall 2015 Orientation Is Now Full

Fall classes start Monday, August 24th

Orientation is now full for students wishing to start classes on August 24th.

ATTN: Transfer and visiting students do not need orientation.


The Office of Admissions and Advising will offer limited walk-in availability from August 24th - 28th from 9am - 3:30pm - available on a first-come, first-serve basis - for students still needing assistance with fall 2015 courses. Moderate to long wait times may be experienced. We encourage students to arrive as early as possible to maximize their chance of being advised.

Please note: Walk-in availability is only available to students with questions/concerns directly related to Fall Enrollment who have ACT/COMPASS placement scores or transcripts from their previous college/university.


Important: To better serve our students, appointments will still be required for the following services:

  • Financial Aid appeals
  • In-depth degree or career exploration
  • Letters of recommendations
  • Students requesting reinstatement from academic suspension (please email success@nwacc.edu to schedule an appointment for Spring 2016).

Remember, an advising appointment is not needed for:

  • Registering online for classes (instructions available here; available to all students with no active account holds)
  • Changing your degree/major (simply complete and submit this form to Student Records - however, we encourage you to visit with your advisor as soon as possible about your degree/career goal changes)


For some questions and concerns, students may find answers in either of our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) pages below or on our website.
