Student Services

National Louis University is a “you” university. Everything that we do is centered on your success. We have academic advisors to help you choose the classes you need to graduate on time. We have librarians & learning support specialists waiting to help — both online and in-person — if you need extra assistance with any course or subject. And we have career counselors who can show you how to translate your NLU education into a fulfilling and successful career.


Orientation and Registration

Students new to NLU will be introduced to student support services and learn more about university policies during student orientation. Also during orientation, you will meet the Academic Advising Center staff, who will assist you in registering for classes. Remember: Before you can register, you need to make an appointment with an advisor to have your courses approved.
