NCA Express Advising




NCA offers express advising in the fall, winter and spring quarters to provide career-related assistance on a drop-in basis, with no appointment required in the Northwestern University Library on the second floor in the North tower, also known as the "Core.” A typical walk-in lasts 15-20 minutes. The NCA practitioner will inquire about your current needs, explain relevant services, recommend resources, and refer you as needed. While the Express Advising Center is not meant to serve as a substitution for the full services found at our main office at 620 Lincoln, it is a convenient location for quick and individualized drop-in services. 

  • 2020 Winter Quarter hours:  January 6 - March 13, 2-4pm
