Make the most of academic advising

A good working relationship with your advisor will keep you on track toward your degree so that you can graduate on time - making the most of your finances and effort. The key is to think carefully and intentionally about your NDNU experience and what sort of help you need. Be prepared for your meetings, and study your options. Your advisor will help you choose the best among them. See our guide, How to Graduate on Time.
