Center for Academic Success & Advising (CASA)
CASA, the Center for Academic Success & Advising, is the epicenter for supporting students in pursuit of their academic goals. CASA support begins when prospective students in the College of Arts & Sciences (CAS) consider their first semester schedule at NNU. CASA works closely with the CAS Admission’s Team and the Registrar’s Office to create schedules for all incoming students enrolling in CAS. From the first day of classes through commencement, CASA offers a full array of academic services including: tutoring, 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 seeking to improve.
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.
