First Year Advising

We encourage all first-year students to read through the Yearly "To-Do" List. Enrolling in classes can be overwhelming.  Use our services and guidance to keep your degree progress on track.

Before Orientation: Priority Enrollment

If you’re a new, incoming student, submit a Priority Enrollment profile prior to attending Orientation.

Prepare for next term: Early Enrollment Advising

Current NAU students, have your Academic Advising Hold removed by completing Early Enrollment Advising. Review your goals, courses, and degree requirements each term before enrollment.
