Academic Success & Advising
Center for Academic Success & Advising
CASA, the Center for Academic Success & Advising, is the epicenter for supporting students in pursuit of their academic goals.
The Center for Academic Success & Advising is located in the Leah Peterson Learning Commons.
CASA support begins when prospective undergraduate students consider their first semester schedule at NNU. CASA works closely with the undergraduate Admissions Team and the Registrar’s Office to create schedules for all incoming undergraduate students. From the first day of classes and through commencement, CASA offers a full array of academic services including tutoring, the Writing Center, academic coaching, disability support for academics, academic advising for select majors and “deciding” students and test proctoring services. Academic progress is monitored each semester and the CASA faculty/staff also offers additional assistance for students on academic probation.
Disability Support Services
Disability Support Services (DSS) for all students at the University are available through CASA. DSS exists to ensure access to the University and its programs by students with disabilities. The office coordinates and provides reasonable accommodations, advocates for an accessible and hospitable learning environment and promotes self-determination on the part of the individuals served.
Finally, CASA supports the educational mission of NNU by providing high-quality testing services in accordance with the National College Testing Association Professional Standards and Guidelines and governmental regulations. The services provided for students, faculty, staff, community members and business partners will be consistently rendered with an attitude of service that demonstrates value for relationships, personal excellence, diversity and commitment to lifelong learning.
