 How do I see an academic advisor?

Academic advisors see students on a walk in basis only. We encourage you to plan ahead to visit with an advisor prior to the peak registration period for a shorter wait time. To sign up to see an advisor, click the link below.  To ensure we are able to visit with each student we sign in, we may discontinue our sign in list for the day prior to our closing time. PLEASE NOTE: During registration periods, this may happen very early in the day. 

 No more need to STAND in line- We've gone virtual! 

**We are excited about this new service, but realize it will take some time for our new system to learn our estimated wait times. Please understand that during this process, actual wait times may be longer than estimated wait times. We appreciate your patience as we work to improve our services. **

Advising Hours

 Advising Services are offered year round.  Be proactive and plan your advising session to avoid the peak periods and extended wait times. 

Students are seen by advisors on a First Come, First Serve basis and you must sign in via the Virtual Sign-in ( http://alamo.edu/nvc/virtualsignin/ ) to be seen.   

Advising sign in opens at 8:00am Monday- Thursday    The Virtual Sign-in will close when the Advising Services have met the maximum capacity to serve (advising sessions are full for the day).   

Our online advisor is available for advising support at a distance during the hours of operation. See link to chat above.
