Schedule an Advising Appointment



Do I have to meet with an advisor before I am allowed to register for classes?

Yes! All students who are degree seeking (not special non-degree) must meet with an academic advisor before registering for classes.  During these advising sessions, advisors will ensure each student has the correct major listed on their account and provide an outline for what classes the student should take to graduate on time.  Taking classes that are not required for a students specific degree will result in financial aid not paying for the class and potentially not graduating on time. Meeting with an advisor to plan courses is very important! 

Do I have to wait on my current semester grades before I register for classes?

No! Students can register for classes for the next semester before they receive their final grades.  If a student does not pass courses needed as pre-requisites, they will be administratively dropped from any future courses where the pre-requisite is required. Waiting until you receive final grades can negatively impact students by courses being full.

How do I know what courses I need to take?

Academic advisors will help students plan their academic courses for their selected major.  Additionally, all students have access to Degree Works, a degree audit program through their MyNortheast account.  For information on using degree works, visit the Degree Works website.  Curriculum guides are also available for print through the academic catalog.


I am a new student, when can I register?

First time college students will register for classes during their new student registration day. Students admitted for the summer or fall 2023 semester will receive a mailed letter with information regarding signing up for a date by the end of March 2023. Transfer students can contact the Advising Resource Center at to schedule an appointment with an academic advisor to register for classes.
