ADVISING /COUNSELLING AT NAAC


ACADEMIC ADVISING FOR NEW STUDENTS

Each new student is encouraged to have an advising session with an academic Counsellor. The session includes guidance in  selecting an appropriate plan of study, reviewing student’s progress on the core curriculum, reviewing major eligibility, discussing applicable academic policies, making individualized course recommendations, and providing other appropriate guidance.

The academic counsellor will use information (e.g., high school transcripts, assessment scores and other evaluative data) to assist a student in pursuing a program consistent with the student’s educational goals and level of preparation. Students should use the SIS (student portal) and/or maintain contact with their Enrolment Specialist throughout their studentship.


PLAN FOR SUCCESS AT NAAC

Each student is responsible for being adequately informed about the requirements for their desired degree and that the courses in which they enroll will meet the degree requirements. To gain a total college experience, students are encouraged to familiarize themselves with NAAC’s campus, services, activities and resources. NAAC school and academic counsellors, as well as family and peers, can all be valuable sources of information and referral. Students should become familiar with the Student Handbook, Class Schedule and this College Catalog. Students are also encouraged to participate in programs, classes and activities that help them develop and grow academically.
