Ready to Access Academic Advising?

We understand that our students are incredibly busy, so we have introduced on-your-own-time (OYOT) advising for students to complete at their own pace. OYOT advising means that students will watch our recorded academic advising video which explains the advising process, the steps to registering, and the resources available at CSN. After watching the video, students will complete an assessment survey, which, along with placement test results, will allow an academic advisor to make course recommendations. The course recommendations will then be emailed to the student. 

To begin accessing academic advising services, follow these instructions:

  • Select your Area of Study or Academic Major below.
  • Click on the "Access My Advising Video" link to register. 
  • Once registered, you will receive a confirmation email with a link to view our academic advising video.
  • Watch the video and complete the assessment survey at the end.
  • Within five business days, you will receive a course recommendation form in your CSN student email account from an academic advisor. This email will also provide you instructions on how to get registered. 

Classes are filling up fast - don't wait to begin the advising process! Register to receive your advising video today to get started.
