Student Services


Welcome to Student Services

College of Education (COE) Student Services is committed to providing the students and the community with critical services in the areas of recruitment, advising, and retention. Through the use of comprehensive programs and developmental advising the COE Student Services office assists in the development and transitioning of students into exemplary role models in chosen fields and global communities.

As an NIU student, you are ultimately responsible for making yourself familiar with the regulations, policies, and requirements of the University, the College, and your major department. The Undergraduate Catalog, Course Schedule, and the major departmental handbook (if available) provide this information. (If any discrepancies exist between the College's web site and the Catalog, please refer to the Catalog.)


To connect recruitment, advising, and retention in an effort to support College of Education Students toward graduation.
