Through the advisement process, the advisor offers both advice and direction toward the realization of the student's personal goals and the enhancement of the overall college experience.
Current Students who plan to register for winter and spring 2019 classes should meet with their assigned academic advisor to plan their schedule. Students can find the name and contact information of their advisor in Starfish (access through Blackboard). Most advisors also have their office hours posted in Starfish.
Registration starts on October 22 and registration priority is determined by the number of previously earned credits. Students should meet with their assigned advisor to receive a RAP (Registration Access Pin) before their designated registration date.
Current students will receive a T-Wolves notification from Registration and Records regarding what week they are eligible to register. Students should prepare for their advisement session by running a degree evaluation in Degree Works and reviewing offered classes.
Any student who needs assistance preparing for their advisement appointment (locating their assigned advisor, running a degree evaluation, or reviewing available classes) should make an appointment with a Success Coach in Student Development (A-131).
Academic advisement is a professional complement to the teaching functions of the faculty at Niagara County Community College. Faculty is the primary agent in delivering academic advisement. They assist students with appropriate course selection from their chosen field of study and serve as resource persons to guide students to other services available at the College.
Academic planning involves complex decisions that take into consideration student individuality, interests, abilities, study habits, and academic and career goals. It requires the guidance of a knowledgeable advisor who provides accurate information on academic policies, procedures, and curricular requirements.
Additionally, Academic Advisors help students gather information regarding transfer to upper division schools and career opportunities. Students interested in our Dual Admission program or in transfer information can gather information from their assigned Academic Advisor. Students may also contact Student Development to set up an appointment for an Academic Counseling session to discuss their options.
