North Lake provides a variety of programs and services to help students reach their academic goals and to enhance their personal, intellectual and social development.
All F1 students must enroll in, and must complete, at least 12 credit hours each semester with a performance grade (A, B, C, etc.). 'WX', 'I', 'WQ', and other markings that are not performance grades have serious F1 consequences. Failure to finish at least 12 credit hours with performance grades at the end of the class/term is a violation of full-time student status. F1 students require advance approval of the International Center to enroll in fewer than 12 credit hours.
We encourage F1 students to register online using the eConnect system when ever possible. However, you may be required to visit the International Center regarding registration if you have a registration block, or if you are a new F1 student registering at NLC for the first time.
If you must see an advisor to register for classes be prepared for long waits in the lobby during peak registration times. If possible, have a draft of your class schedule written out before you see an advisor. While there are exceptions, these peak registration times usually occur during the months of August, January, or May just before the start of a new semester.
If you’re having issues with grades, don’t know if you can pass a class, or are told that you are on probation, talk to your teacher. If you still have problems, see an International Center advisor.
