Advisement & Registration
Student academic advisement is a shared responsibility between the Office of Academic Support and faculty. First-time freshmen are advised by an adviser in Academic Support and transitioned to a faculty adviser during their second year. Your assigned adviser in Academic Support will continue to provide support through financial aid counseling, tutoring referrals, and to provide assistance with other questions you may have.
Your adviser can help you change your major, review degree requirements, explain academic standards and regulations, and teach you how to use Degree Works. Advisement is an important part of your academic success at NMHU!
