Neighborhood Student Success Collaborative (NSSC)
Academic Orientation Program (AOP):
What to Expect

During the first part of the Academic Orientation Program (AOP) for No-Preference Students:

Students will meet with Neighborhood Student Success Collaborative (NSSC) advisors during the College Session: Planning My Learning Experience. During this session, NSSC advisors will talk about:

After the AOP College Session:

  1. Students will be given an appointment to meet with a NSSC advisor. During the advising appointment, the NSSC advisor and the student will prepare an enrollment plan for the upcoming academic year (fall and spring semesters). This plan typically balances the University requirements with exploratory courses that are applicable toward the minimum 120/123* credits required by Michigan State University for graduation.

  2. After preparing an enrollment plan, students will go to a computer lab to begin the enrollment process. Student aides will work one-on-one with incoming students and assist with enrollment. Advisors will be available for consultation regarding scheduling during this process. Schedules can be altered when students return to campus in the Fall - depending on class availability and other factors.

In the Fall, all No-Preference freshmen students will be assigned to a NSSC academic advisor. Students are encouraged to meet with their advisor at least once each semester. Students are encouraged to contact a NSSC advisor at any time if they have any questions or concerns.

*A minimum of 123 credits is required for graduation if MTH 1825 is required
