Advising System Transition from Inspire to ConnectNU

Northwestern will launch a new advising platform, ConnectNU, on November 10. Like Inspire, ConnectNU is an online undergraduate advising platform which students and advisers use to schedule appointments and send messages. You will access ConnectNU exactly the same as you did with Inspire.

In the transition from Inspire to ConnectNU there are Important Actions and Dates related to Scheduling Advising Appointments to discuss Winter Registration.
In the table below you will see important actions and dates. Please read through the table to understand that you may want to use Inspire now to make future appointments before the move to ConnectNU on November 10.
