The Academic Advisement Center is the College's main resource center for academic
advisement. It is the primary academic advisement provider for liberal arts and undecided
students, either currently attending or returning to the College. The Center is staffed
by a core of trained professional advisors and teaching faculty who serve on a rotating
basis. Current and returning students in non-liberal arts areas should contact advisors
in their majors. The Center notifies new students of advisement information via their NCC email. Current
and returning students are seen on a walk-in basis.
The Center is also the primary advisement resource for all current and returning evening
students except those in the "specialized programs" listed immediately below.
- Administrative Business Technology;
- Allied Health Sciences;

The mission of the academic advising program at Nassau Community College is to assist
students in the development of meaningful educational plans that are compatible with
their goals. Further, it is to fully inform students regarding requirements in their
areas of concentration and expose students to the variety of course and degree options
offered by the College. This should take the form of an ongoing discussion between
advisor and student, beyond merely a consideration of selecting courses for registration.
The Office of Academic Advisement, located at the Academic Advisement Center is responsible
for the overall coordination and direction of the advising program at the College.
These programs are provided in several different locations as listed in the following
