The University Advisement Center (UAC) is the central place for all undergraduate advisement at NJCU. We are a campus-wide advising service center for undergraduates who are undecided about a major and want to explore the many academic opportunities on campus. The UAC also assists students who are considering changing majors or would like to explore other options. Your academic advisors are knowledgeable about all the programs and majors offered at NJCU and are available to help you succeed.
Are you uncertain about your assigned advisor? Academic Advisors are assigned to assist new, undeclared, transfer, and veteran students. By using the first letter of your last name, you will be able to contact your assigned advisor. If your last name begins with the letter listed under the last name below, contact the advisor to the right of the alphabet. Please see below:
How can I see my advisor: Making an AppointmentYou should plan to meet with your advisor at the beginning of every registration period. Registration opens in March for the Fall semester and again in October, for the Spring semester. Registration will continue to be open until the end of the first week of class of that following semester. Your advisor can help you think about your educational goals and can help you plan for your years at NJCU. Failure to visit your advisor will affect your ability to register in future semesters. Seek an advisor soon after the last day to add classes. Add/Drop – you can add or drop a class from your schedule during the first week of the semester. After that, dropping a class will be considered a “Withdrawl” and you will receive a “W” on your transcript. However, it does not affect your grade point average unless it is an unauthorized withdrawal (one where you failed to do the proper paperwork) which counts as an F.

Monday 8:00a.m.-7:00 p.m. and Tuesday 8:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. and on Wednesday 8:00 a.m.- 5:00 p.m. Thursday 8:00 a.m.- 7:00 p.m. and Friday 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.During summer sessions, the UAC is open on Monday-Thursday 8:00 am – 5:15pm.

Part of the services of the UAC is to assist students in exploring majors and careers. We help students focus on their interests, values, strengths, and personality to give them the tools they need to make decisions about their careers and their futures.What We Offer
