Supporting your Medill experience

We are your primary resource for information on registration and degree progress as well as Medill and NU opportunities and services.

How we help you

Summer communication and orientation

Over the summer, we’ll be in touch with information to help you prepare for the start of classes, and we’ll set up channels to connect you with your fellow students. At orientation, we’ll help you start off your career at Medill with a fun and informative program.

Academic Advising

You can meet with us throughout the year to discuss academic progress, personal and professional goals and dreams, and your Medill experience.
