The NKU Advising Process

As an NKU student, you are required to meet with your advisor every semester. This helps ensure that you're on track to meet your graduation goals. 

As an English major, your advisor will be Mike Ruwe. Mike can be reached by phone at (859) 572-1394 or by e-mail at

Degree Requirement Checklists

In addition to your regular meetings with your advisor, it can help to have a tool for tracking your progress and planning your future course of study. That's why we've put together our Advising Workbook, which includes lists of requirements for each of our various tracks, as well as checklists so you can see your progress.

Note: Your academic calendar year is the year you started in the program. You can find your academic calendar year in the "Degree Requirement Catalog" section of your MyNKU account, under the "My Records" tab.
