2020-2021 Undergraduate Catalog

Academic Advisement

Northwest provides all undergraduate students with personalized advising that ensures their individual major and career goals are aligned and supported. First-year student academic advisement is decentralized in academic departments/schools and includes a combination of professional and faculty advisors. The personalized advising approach supports students as they transition and includes:

  • assistance with course selection and student registration
  • connections to campus resources
  • introduction to profession-based experiences to support their major

Select students may be required to work with a success coach as part of his/her academic recovery plan, however, success coaching is available optionally to all students.

Students are expected to read the regulations in the University catalog and conform to them. The student is responsible for knowing the regulations and policies and for meeting the requirements for a degree or certificate.
