Northeast State Community College
Incoming Northeast State students must schedule an appointment with an academic advisor before they can register for classes. Students can go through Northeast State's advising directory to find the name and contact infrormation of advisors that match with your anticipated area of study, along with contacts of the academic advising offices for each campus. Students can also visit the Advising Resources Center from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday for support with academic, career and transfer advising services!
Northeast State will be holding 19 orientations for fall classes from June through August. The school does not make dates available to students until they make a reservation for setting an orientation date, and students with incomplete admissions files cannot attend new student orientations (NSOs). Most NSOs are held at the Blountville campus, but some are held at the Kingsport, Johnson City and Elizabethton campuses. There is an online orientation that students must complete in addition to the in-person orientation and accepted students are automatically directed to the online orientation platform. The Blountville campus allows 120 students per session, 75 for Kingsport and 60 for Elizabethton and Johnson City. The orientations last 2-3 hours. Students also meet one-on-one with a new student advisor at the orientation.
July 1 is the recommended due date in case additional documentation is requested. Northeast State begins processing financial aid information for the next academic year in late March/early April and sends letters to students selected for verification shortly thereafter. Students can log into their MyNortheast accounts to access all of the documents they need to turn in. In May, Northeast State sends follow-up emails, letters and phone calls to students who are still missing their required documentation. One tip for students to remember that makes this process smoother: it is easiest to visit campus to complete and submit requirements instead of via email, phone or fax.
