The Office of Student Services is comprised of dedicated, knowledgeable, and student-centered professionals who are prepared to advise students at all stages of the process from the pre-nursing program stage through graduation. We are available to answer your questions, address your concerns, and provide you with the support you will need as you navigate the University, the admission process, and life as a nursing student.

Once you declare nursing as your major, you will be assigned a KCON Academic Advisor. You should meet with your advisor at least once per semester.

How can your advisor help you?

  • Degree Planning
  • Registration Support
  • Admission Issues
  • Offer personal support and career guidance
