Welcome to the Advising Center

You have been admitted to
MSU-N... now what?

You want to transfer to
MSU-N... now what?

Now you contact the advising center and we will show you what is next!

All new freshman and transfer students who have been admitted to MSU-Northern are required to attend one of our Advising & Registration Days. During the session you will register for classes, discuss program sheets and academic planning, become acquainted with policies & procedures, and learn about some basic things you need to know before arriving for classes!


Our mission is to guide new students (freshmen or transfer) in the selection of coursework for their first semester at MSU-Northern and until the student has decided on a major area of study. Primarily we empower and encourage the students to be in charge of their education process by holding advising sessions, and assisting the student with online services.


  • To explain degree program requirements and university policies.
  • To answer any questions about registration or/and attending Northern.
  • To register freshmen and transfer students.
  • To hold advising sessions for groups of students, individuals, and on the phone.
