Nashville State

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.

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 by which they must submit their documentation to the school. If students miss the deadline, students are marked as "verification incomplete" and are removed from the school roster until they submit 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 compare 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 tax transcripts. If students decide not to use the data retrieval tool on the FAFSA, they will need to submit NSCC’s preferred IRS 2018 tax return transcript or a signed copy of their parent/guardian’s federal income tax return.
