Kaylee Willingham, from Tuscumbia, goes through online advising with NWSCC Success Coach Seth Armstrong

MUSCLE SHOALS & PHIL CAMPBELL, ALA. — Northwest Shoals Community College (NWSCC) will begin summer and fall registration in a little different way beginning next week. Advising and registration will be conducted exclusively online beginning Monday, April 13 (registration begins for students with 30+ earned hours).

On Wednesday, April 15, registration will begin for students with less than 30 earned hours and on Monday, April 20, registration will begin for new students. Summer classes begin Tuesday, May 26.

NWSCC is working to make decisions that are in the best interests of the health, safety, and academic success of its students. “The health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff come first,” said NWSCC President Dr. Glenda Colagross. “We believe we have put together a new virtual registration process that will best help our students register for the summer and fall semesters in our current environment.”

NWSCC staff will be available by email and WebEx chat links to meet all the needs of current and prospective students and answer any questions they may have about Summer and/or Fall Registration. Faculty, staff, and administration will do their best to respond to all e-mailed questions on the same day.

NWSCC has set-up a Summer/Fall Registration webpage to walk current and prospective students through the registration process. Students can click on the link and sign up for advising appointments online. Advising appointments are conducted in a one-on-one virtual environment where students and advisors have the opportunity to interact face-to-face through the college’s WebEx communication software.

For those who have not yet applied for admission to NWSCC, they can apply online. Students who have not already applied for financial aid are encouraged to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) immediately. The FAFSA can be submitted online, and the NWSCC school code is 005697.
