Academic Advising Process

During the Eagle Institute Orientation, you will have your first meeting with your academic advisor. New first-year and transfer students enter the University College at North Carolina Central University and are required to meet with their academic advisors multiple times each semester. During the initial meeting, a review of your desired academic program, including the general education curriculum and general academic policies (academic progress, holds, schedules, grade point average, etc.), and an overview of the registration process will take place.

The advising process is simple:

  1. Student reviews academic program and course offerings prior to the advising conference.
  2. Student meets with his/her academic advisor.
  3. Advisor and student review the academic curriculum and course offerings for the up-coming semester.
  4. Advisor and student complete, review, and sign the Advising Worksheet.
  5. Advisor and student receives a print-out of the schedule of registered courses.

Students are required to meet with their advisors throughout each semester; however, it is imperative that they meet with their advisors prior to registration. Since students meet with advisors frequently, it may be necessary and is recommended that students schedule appointments.

To ensure security, Alternate PIN (APIN) Numbers are necessary for registration and are changed every semester.
