MEET WITH YOUR ASSIGNED ADVISOR to identify your intended educational and career pathway choice.
CREATE YOUR ISP - Determine what classes you will take in the upcoming semesters in your GPS. Your Advisor will confirm and Lock your plan.
ALTERNATE CREDIT CONSIDERATIONS - Former AP Students should order scores after completing their first semester. CLEP credit is a process that should be pursued early (in order to receive scores in a timely manner).
MAINTAIN A MINIMUM GPA OF 2.0 - Some programs will demand a higher GPA; your intended 4-year university may have higher GPA expectations.
ESTABLISH RESIDENCY - Completing at least 5 courses at NLC will ensure your residency.
PROVIDE FINAL HS TRANSCRIPTS - Not all High Schools are able to add each student's HS Graduation date to transcripts when ordered soon after HS Graduation. You may still need to provide this documentation.
Northeast Lakeview College takes pride in every student that has accepted the challenges associated with pursuing higher education. We thank you for choosing NLC as your home campus.
Check your student e-mail for Commencement information and attend Graduation Fiesta in April.
