All incoming freshmen are scheduled for an individual advisement session to select courses for the fall semester and discuss them with an academic advisor. These individual meetings are held on campus and should be attended by students only. All students must bring a photo ID, such as a driver's license, to their advisement session.
At NSO advisement, new students have the opportunity to:
- Cover important topics such as student life, academics and registration
- Receive academic advisement and register for their first-semester courses
- Have their student ID photo taken
- Interact with new and current students
Please note: All incoming students must complete the online ALEKS Math Placement Exam before the deadline of June 19, 2019. The exam and instructions for completing it are located at My Blue Hen Home. Students who have not completed the placement exam will have to postpone their advisement and class selection, which may cause significant problems in the scheduling and registration process.
The individual advisement session is a crucial step in planning for a successful freshman year. Students who are unable to attend their assigned advisement appointment will be rescheduled for a time during open registration and cannot be guaranteed their choice of seats in all classes.
If you are unable to attend one of the regularly scheduled advisement sessions, make-up sessions are available. See "Make-Up Advisement Dates" below. Registration for these sessions opens on Monday, June 17, 2019.
