 The Advising, Career and Transfer Services (ACT) Team provides integrated academic and career services to students.

The mission of NVC and the ACT team is Creating Opportunities for Success and the vision is To become responsible members of our world community, we create exemplary models for: learning to be; learning to work; learning to serve; and learning to lead...together. 

The ACT team's top priorities are to guide students through the career exploration process so they can declare a major and develop an education plan, attain their degree or certificate, graduate, and transfer to a four-year university, or successfully enter the workforce.

Steps for Enrollment  

First Time in College (FTiC) – This will be the first time—excluding dual credit work—that you will attend college. If you are a new college student, this is where you will begin. 

Transfer -- You have previously completed any college coursework.  

Returning Student – You have previously completed coursework at any of the five Alamo Colleges, but have not been enrolled for a full academic term i.e. fall or spring 

Where can I obtain services from the ACT Team?
