Ask An Advisor

ask-an-advisor1It is nearly May, which means that summer classes start soon (two weeks!) and you can register for fall classes anytime (though payment isn’t due until August).  We thought this would be a good time to include some links to previous posts with questions and answers about advising.   Is your question not here?  Let us know… we’re glad to feature new questions or simply to answer yours in a one-on-one meeting.

Where can I find a list of current Transfer Credit Agreements so that I make sure the Lower Division class I take at a community college will transfer?

Where can I find a list of online lower division classes to take?

Why do I have to keep submitting my transcripts?

Which classes do I have to take at NDNU; which can I take elsewhere?

How do I make sure that I graduate on time?

Any tips on satisfying my math requirement?

Why can’t I take 12 units?

Is college worth it for me? Not sure about juggling work and school or facing friends or family who aren’t convinced? See our “Resources For Adult Learner” tab above.
