Welcome to NVC's Virtual Self Sign-in

Here you can sign in to join the line to visit with our staff in either Advising or Admissions and Records.  Once you have entered your phone number and/or name, you will be able to enter one or both lines.  You will also see the number of people and the estimated wait time for each line, allowing you to plan accordingly.  Once you join a line, you will receive text messages updating you on your wait.  

To ensure you receive the service you need, please keep in mind the following:

  • Download, print, and complete required forms you may need.  Forms can be found at the Virtual Sign-In Forms page.
  • Bring any other documentation required for the service you are signing in for (lease, transcripts, etc.)
  • If you are not sure what you need, go to NVC Chat before signing in.  This will help ensure you get in the correct line.
  • Wait times are approximate.  You will be given the option to request more time in the text messages you receive.
  • You can add yourself to the queues by texting "northwest" to 310-740-7906.

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 ( ) to be seen.   

NOTE:  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 below.
