NCCU Academic Advising

The goal of University Advising is to collaborate with students, parents and the community to promote autonomy, independence and the opportunity to participate in and improve the academic advising process. We make an effort to interact with students, clarify academic and professional objectives, and provide guidance for thoughtful and goal-oriented academic advancement.

University advising is available whether you need a partner to help you with your academic success plan, are contemplating jobs in the health sciences or are just researching majors.
