Welcome to Academic Advising at NHTI!

At NHTI, we encourage students to work closely with an academic advisor to help define academic, career, and life goals. Whether a student needs guidance selecting classes, transferring to a four-year school, or clarifying long-term goals, an advisor is available to assist in the process.

Students who are enrolled in academic programs like Criminal Justice, General Studies, or Nursing are advised by their department chairs or other faculty advisors in their departments. The Academic Advising Center, located in Sweeney Hall 103, serves students who are taking classes exclusively in the evening or are not enrolled in an academic program. Selected General Studies and Liberal Arts students are also advised in the Academic Advising Center.

Philosophy and Goals for Advising

The advising program at NHTI provides students with the knowledge needed to identify their personal, academic, and career goals; develop an appropriate educational and career plan; and monitor their progress toward achieving those goals.

  • To empower students to be active participants in their own decision-making processes
  • To connect students to the community through facilitating active participation in school resources, student clubs and organizations, athletic teams, work-study programs, and student activities
  • To help students understand themselves, develop critical thinking and reasoning skills, and clarify personal values
  • To provide advising services that are visible and available to all students
