Center for Academic
Success & Advising

CASA, the Center for Academic Success & Advising, is responsible for advising and scheduling all new students in addition to providing services for academic support, tutor services, disability services and academic testing. CASA endeavors to enhance the educational experience of each student through assistance in discovering his or her abilities, interests and career objectives. Student progress is monitored each semester and the CASA staff counsels those encountering difficulties.

Disability Support Services (DSS) for 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 selfdetermination on the part of the individuals served.

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.
