Spring 2015 Registration

Students Need to Meet With an Advisor, May have to Reconcile Accounts Prior to Signing Up for Classes

Priority registration for Spring 2015 will begin on Monday, November 3. The schedule is as follows:

  • November 3rd: Seniors, Honors, Academic Support Center
  • November 4th: Juniors
  • November 5th: Sophomores
  • November 6th: Freshmen

Students must log into my.NDC.edu (My NDC) to see their specific registration start time. Registration will remain open to students through December 11, which is the last day of the final exam period.

All students must schedule an appointment with their academic advisor and receive clearance to register. Academic advisor assignments can be found on My.NDC. Students will not be granted a waiver of degree requirement or an exception to a policy by pleading lack of information or misinformation by an advisor or other college authority. It is the student’s responsibility to verify that all requirements are met.

Students are encouraged to check the accuracy of their major and personal information as listed on My.NDC. If a student wishes to change his/her major at any time, he/she must visit Student Services and complete a new major declaration form.

Please keep in mind that outstanding financial aid matters or an outstanding account balance will interfere with your student’s ability to register for spring semester.   Students who have not paid their account in full or who are not current on their payment plan will have a business hold placed on their record and will not be permitted to register for the spring semester. 

In order to have a business hold released, students must bring their account to current status or have acceptable payment arrangements in place.  After the student's account has been brought current, the student should contact Student Accounts to review the account and release the business hold.  After the hold has been released, the student will be able to register for the spring semester.

If you have any concerns regarding your student’s account, please contact Student Accounts at 216.373.5213 or log on to My.NDC.edu with your parent login and password information to check on your student’s balance and account information.

Studying for Midterms

Fall 2014 Midterm Grades

Still Time, Resources for Students to Succeed this Semester

It’s hard to believe that we are already halfway through the fall 2014 semester. What does that mean? It’s time for midterm grades!

Students will be able to view their midterm grades on My.NDC.edu beginning on Monday, October 20. Academic advisors will also have access to see their advisees’ midterms and will discuss their progress during their advising meeting. In addition, advisors will be notified by the Student Success Center if one of their students is failing or in danger of failing one or more classes. Students and advisors will work together to develop an academic plan to improve their grades and will be reminded of the many free resources available to them in the Dwyer Learning Center.

While we do not encourage students to withdraw from a course, it is an option for them if they believe they are not in a position to pass, or if they need to focus on improving their performances in other classes. Besides meeting with their academic advisors, if students are concerned about a particular class, they should meet with their professor to discuss their grade. Students have until Friday, October 31, to withdraw from a class.

Please help us encourage our students to take advantage of the resources available to them. With your help and their willingness to put in the work, there is still plenty of time for them to achieve success this semester.

Parent Portal

Parent Portal

Support Your Student with a My.NDC.edu Parent Account

Notre Dame College is pleased to announce the launch of our Parent Web Portal on My.NDC.edu. This online tool will provide parents with the resources to stay connected to the campus and to help support their student’s progress throughout their college career.

Due to Family Educational Rights and Privacy ACT (FERPA) regulations, permission must be granted by the student before a parent can access the portal. When permission is granted, parents can have access to view academic records, financial aid and student account information. Instructions on how to access and manage this new tool can be found on the landing page of My.NDC.edu.

We recognize that parents are an important part of our campus community and we look forward to this new line of communication. If you have any questions about the parent portal, please contact studentsuccess@ndc.edu.

Campus Activities

Why Your Student Will Want to Get Involved in Campus Life

There are a great number of activities and events for your son or daughter to get involved with at Notre Dame College. We have approximately 20 active student organizations on campus, ranging from the Notre Dame News student newspaper, Biology Club, Undergraduate Student Government, Tennis Club and Student Athletic Advisory Council.

This link Clubs and Organizations will give you a complete listing of what the College has to offer. If a student doesn’t see club he or she wants to join, he or she can work with USG to create a new group on campus!

In addition to the various student organizations, Notre Dame has a wide variety of campus-wide events. Check out our event calendar

The Campus Activities Office (CAO) offers weekly events, including yoga every Tuesday and zumba every Thursday in the Regina Gym, both are from 8-9 p.m. All events are free for students.

The intramural season also is in full gear, with flag football and badminton starting in October. Other intramurals will be held during the spring term.

Every Friday, the CAO offers events either on or off campus for students only. They have gone to Whirlyball, movies, bonfires and will be having bowling nights, ice skating and more! The office cannot encourage you enough to have your son or daughter get involved on campus.

Still looking for more to do? Have your son or daughter stop in the office, Regina Hall room 22 and have them sign up for a job or to help us plan an event! It’s all about what they want on campus!
