NSC Pre-Conference Question

Hi all, I know that the pre-NSC day is optional but I was wondering if and what I can gain by going. That or, do most people not go? Thanks

    I would highly recommend going to the optional early day. You can get several of the check-list items done before the lines are long on the subsequent days (i.e. student ID, sports pass, post office box).

    If you can, definitely go to the pre-day. I did, and got SO much checked off my list. I got my ID in about 15 minutes because the line was so short. I also got my account set up at the SCC and did a campus tour. There were no lines to sign in or buy howdy lunch/family dinner tickets or t-shirts. The lines for IDs on the official "day 1" were insane, with people waiting probably two or three hours.

    I keep getting conflicting info about the sports pass. I was told originally we could get it early, but more recently that you must have registered to get it. Can someone who has attended recently let me know?

    DD had NSC on Tuesday and Wednesday. She picked up her Sports Pass on Tuesday and registered for classes on Wednesday.

    you can go to Howdy and add sports pass, and parking pass to your account before NSC. You can pick up the sports pass at NSC, your parking pass will be mailed.

    Wait.. one more question...what do we pay for at NSC? Tuition? Fees? Housing?
  • jrt336jrt336 Registered User Posts: 1,044 Senior Member
    ^Nothing. That's all paid for in August.

    How does class registration work? I heard from one person that everyone registered for classes at the same time while anothertold me that there were times given to each person.

    at my daughters NSC - architecture - the advisor registered the classes for first semester. After that - you see your advisor to discuss your classes, you are given a time slot to register, you get on-line during that time slot and register yourself.

    @AggieEngineer - If you are an incoming freshman, the second day of your NSC there is a block of time during which the students register. Different schools are assigned different computer labs to go to. General Studies students went to Evans last year I believe. My student was Business Honors and they were on the first floor of the library over at Mays. I'm sure you get the picture. Watch for the schedule to come out for your NSC or for one that is for Engineering students, it will give you a heads up on what to expect. You could also look for a FB page for the engineering school and ask questions there. Hope this helps!

    For class registration, I know most of the majors met with their advisors on Day 1, and then actually registered at the same time (1:00 for my NSC) on Day 2. It was pretty hectic, and if you can have a couple schedule options already planned out in advance (they should show you how to do that), it will greatly benefit you.

    Also, what does R mean on the day column of howdy? I was trying to make an example class schedule and have no idea what this means?
