Preparing for your Appointment

In preparation for your advising appointment, here are a few things you need to do to prepare:

  1. Schedule your appointment in advance. At peak times of the year (such as April, November, or during the summer months) it may be difficult to get an appointment with your academic advisor at a moment's notice. 

  2. Prepare a selection of courses and print your degree plan. Include those courses that you'd like to take and/or think you may need for your degree or transfer plan.

Degree plans are located here.

  1. For students intending to transfer after NWACC, familiarize yourself with the program/major requirements and/or admissions requirements for the school you plan on transferring to. Visit their website to obtain a list of courses that they require. This will help you and your advisor choose the most appropriate classes for your education.

Visit our Transfer Center webpage for more information.

  1. Come with a list of questions and concerns written down. This will help you get the most out of your appointment and help us address your needs effectively.

  2. And finally, show up early or on-time for your advising appointment. Remember to call to cancel or reschedule your appointment well in advance if you are unable to make it. This will allow another student to take your appointment time.
