Nashville State Community College

Advising

Upon being accepted to Nashville State, each first-time freshman is assigned an academic advisor within their area of study and are required to meet with their advisor before registering for their classes. In order to find their advisor, students can log into their myNSCC accounts, click on the advising resources tab, access the Academic Profile box and scroll through to find their assigned advisor. Students can then access the campus directory to find their advisor's contact information. Students should contact the Records office at 615-353-3218 or Admissions at 615-353-3215 if they do not have an advisor or if their advisor has been unresponsive.

New Student Orientation

Nashville State requires orientation for all first-time freshmen. Students are invited via email once they are admitted into the school and they should receive one within a week of their acceptance. Four orientations will be offered in April and May; two orientations a month will be offered in June, July and August. There are no online orientations available for students. Students who are not attending the White Bridge campus can reserve spaces in orientations on their campuses online.

Student Portal

Students can use their MyNSCC login to register for classes, make their payments, access their grades and view their class schedule. Students will receive an A number (your login ID) upon applying to Nashville State and will receive a link to set their own password before gaining access to MyNSCC. Please contact Nashville State's helpdesk at HelpDesk@nscc.edu or 615-353-3678 if you are having any technical issues!

Verification Process

Nashville State emails students directly and provides them deadlines (two weeks to respond) by which they must submit their documentation to the school. If students miss the deadline, Nashville State then marks them as “verification incomplete,” and they are removed from the school roster until they submit all of the necessary documentation.

Students can login to their MyNSCC portal, click the financial aid tab, select the appropriate academic year and view the requirements they need to submit. The requirements are listed in PDF format so the student can print them off to complete and return to Nashville State's financial aid office.

Some of the most common missing documents and information include dependent students not listing their full parent household on their verification worksheet and having issues with receiving proper tax information, although that is easier now that Financial Aid can accept copies of tax returns instead of just the tax transcripts from the IRS.
