Meet Your Advisor


At NCTC, you are assigned to a specific advisor or success coach based on your major or career interests. You can locate our advisors and the majors they work with below and schedule an appointment during available times. 

Make sure to check our campus operating hours to know when we are here and when extended hours are offered, and Lion365 to know all important dates related to registration for the whole year!


Appointments are not scheduled during January and August. Students are assisted through our virtual line on a "walk-in" basis or through group advising sessions during these very busy months!
