Academic Advising

Live Chat Option

Academic advising at MCC is a college-wide effort dedicated to helping you reach your educational goals. Members of the college community provide guidance, encouragement and resources based on their specific areas of expertise.

Academic Year Advising (Fall/Spring Semesters)

Every student admitted to a degree or certificate program is assigned to an academic advisor within that program. You should meet with your advisor at least twice a semester to review your learning plan, evaluate the progress you are making towards graduation / transfer, and select courses for the upcoming semester. You and your advisor will work together to develop and refine your academic plan, address challenges, and identify opportunities.
