Academic Advising Center


If you're undecided about your major, the Academic Advising Center (AAC) has a team of dedicated staff to help you achieve your personal, academic and career goals at NIU. Students without majors or affiliation with one of NIU's six undergraduate colleges are assigned to the AAC for their academic advising needs. As an "undecided-any college" student, we will work with you from the time you arrive on campus during orientation until you've made an informed major choice. Check out what some of our students have to say about the Academic Advising Center.
