Student Resources and Academic Support Services

Academic Advising

Academic advising services for all programs are available through the Registrar’s Office. Advising services are available to educate new and continuing students on current degree requirements and curriculum; provide individualized long-term program planning for part time and full time students; interpret academic policies and procedures; assist with the development of a personalized academic schedule; and support students in achieving their educational and vocational goals.

Peer Tutoring

Peer Tutoring Services are provided through the Registrar’s Office to facilitate the learning experience of all students. The service is provided free of charge in individual and group settings, and a current list of tutors is available in the Office of Student Affairs. Peer tutors are recruited from the student body and are selected based on their history of academic success and a desire to help others.

International Students

The Financial Aid Office provides assistance to international students seeking temporary admission to the United States to pursue a full course of study. Forms are generated and student records are continually maintained to assure proper student status and compliance with the Department of Homeland Security, United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).

Student and Exchange Visitor Information System

Northwestern Health Sciences University has full approval from the USCIS to enroll foreign students. The Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS) is an Internet-based application for electronically tracking and reporting on foreign students in the United States. SEVIS enables schools and program sponsors to transmit electronic information to the USCIS and United States Department of State throughout a student’s program in the United States.

SEVIS enables schools to submit school certification applications, update certification information, submit updates to the USCIS that require adjudication, and create and update F-1 (academic) student and dependent records. Designated School Officials (DSOs) maintain the SEVIS program.
