College of Social Sciences & Humanities Academic Advisors
The college academic advisors, located in the Center for Academic Services in 180 Renaissance Park, provide general guidance on academic matters and assist students in their progress from orientation through graduation. Students with questions about their degree audit, NU Core, transferring credits, or pursuing a double major should make an appointment to meet with the college advisor.

Cooperative Education Coordinator
All international affairs majors are assigned a co-op coordinator within international affairs. Students pursuing a dual or combined major between two departments can choose which department’s co-op coordinator is more appropriate for their career interests. These advisors will guide students through the process of preparing for co-op, applying for jobs, and reflecting on the experience.
