clubs
and
organizations
that can help you explore your interests. Have an idea for one we don't offer? Contact the Campus Life Office and we can help!
Advising
NWCCD has professional and faculty advisors to assist students with academic questions. The professional staff provides general advising (by appointment or walk-in) in the Advising Office, located in the Edward A. Whitney Academic Center (SC) or The Main Building (GC). Once a student selects a major, s/he will be assigned a faculty advisor. Advisors assist students in preparing for their college program before the fall and spring semesters. Students are expected to schedule conferences with their academic advisors to discuss their degree/career plans and review academic progress.
