How Advisors Get Assigned

Faculty members at NTC serve as academic advisors to students. There are many academic advisors on campus and students are assigned to an advisor in their declared degree program.

The Advising Partnership

NTC is strongly committed to the concept of the “Advising Partnership.” Your faculty advisor serves as a guide to the college curriculum and academic policy requirements. It is your advisor’s responsibility to guide and counsel. It is your responsibility to make final decisions.

You should discuss the following with your advisor:

  1. Problems that may be impacting your academic performance
  2. Selection of courses for the upcoming semester
  3. Credit load
  4. Repeating courses
  5. Decision to add or drop courses
  6. Academic progress
  7. Selection or change of major
  8. Plans for degree completion
  9. Career consideration
