Faculty/Student Referral

The Academic Advising Center (AAC) encourages faculty and staff to refer students wishing to change majors and who need additional assistance with the major exploration and selection process. The goal of transitional advising is to match each student’s academic strengths, interests and career goals to specific NIU majors.

Please complete the form below with as much information as possible. The information you provide will be sent to the Academic Advising Center (AAC) for review. You will be contacted about the result of this referral as soon as possible. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at: aac@niu.edu or 815.753.2573.
