Show Your Face, or Lose Your Space

NKU students are expected to attend the first scheduled class session of each course for which they are enrolled. If a student does not attend the first day of class, the instructor may drop the student for non-attendance.

Students who know they will be absent must contact their instructor(s) prior to the first class meeting to explain their absence and request to remain enrolled in the course.

Academic Advising Requirements

The proper selection of courses is important for every NKU student. Therefore, you are encouraged to meet with your academic advisor prior to registration each term. As part of the advising process, you may be REQUIRED to have your class schedule approved before you are eligible to register. The following criteria have been established for each division of students who MUST see their academic advisor prior to registration.
