Academic Advising Services (AAS)

Working with academic advisors is highlighted by NMC as a key aspect of college life so that students are fully prepared to excel not only as learners but also as leaders in the CNMI and global communities. Seeing one’s academic advisor is not only a required part of our enrollment process for degree-seeking students but also a crucial step towards independence, preparation, and achievement.

The Academic Advising Services program aims to:

  • Assist students in the development of meaningful academic plans that are consistent with their educational and life goals
  • Coordinate advising services among all other faculty advisors across campus-sites and facilitate opportunities for training and professional development that are compatible with student learning and development

The AAS program provides services to both students and faculty academic advisors, following the Academic Advising Plan, as well as the accreditation mandate.

Services to students include, but are not limited to: Academic advising for all Liberal Arts majors and Undecided students, all Early Admission students, and assisting with transfer to 4-year programs; Assistance in overcoming educational and personal problems and skill deficiencies; Identification of environmental conditions that may negatively impact student academic achievement with proposal of interventions that may alleviate such conditions and; Information/referrals to appropriate institutional or community support services as needed.

Services to faculty advisors include but are not limited to: bi-annual training for all new and ongoing advisors and quarterly, in-service workshops; provision of current and accurate advising information; and information/referrals to appropriate institutional or community support services as needed.
