Welcome to the Advisement Assistance Office!

The Advisement Assistance and Resource Office offers many services and resources to assist Northwest students with their academic questions and inform them of additional resources that help students decide on a major. Since 65% to 85% of all students change their majors during their university career, they can all benefit from becoming familiar with the Advisement Assistance and Resources Office early in their college career.

The office also assists faculty in their roles as advisors by evaluating the advising system, strengthening the advising process and by providing training on the institutional policies, procedures and requirements of Northwest.

In addition, Advisement Assistance organizes and facilitates all preregistration and orientation programs for incoming students. Through Transfer Preregistration and Orientation and SOAR, new students receive an orientation to our campus and register for classes with the assistance of faculty advisors.
