The mission of the Academic Advising Center is to foster learning and help students achieve their highest academic potential. MCC students may use the services in the Academic Advising Center to become successful, independent learners through collaboration with the rest of the college community.
Academic support services are provided free of charge to all MCC students. Individualized tutoring is available in writing, mathematics, business, arts and sciences, technical courses, and liberal arts and sciences on a first-come, first-serve drop-in basis. Additionally, tutoring in specialized subject areas is offered by appointment. Students should come to the Academic Advising Center to ask for a Tutor Request Form for such subjects.
The Academic Advising Center offers assistance in soft skills, such as: study skills, test taking, and time management, among others. The Academic Advising Center runs discussion groups, review sessions, as well as workshops for students in specific courses or areas of study on an as-needed basis. The tutoring staff includes professional tutors and peer tutors chosen for their academic excellence in their specific academic areas.
The Academic Advising Center is home to Math Boot Camp, the Peer Mentoring Program, and Student Success Coaching. Students are encouraged to visit the Academic Advising Center during their first week of classes to become familiar with how the staff helps students succeed.
