Advising Process

Academic advisement at Monroe Community College is a fluid process. It occurs in many places and in a variety of formats. Listed below are the procedures that most MCC students follow:

New, and Readmitted (with a GPA below 2.0) Students:

Students are encouraged to obtain advisement prior to registration. New students are also required to participate in the college-wide Orientation program which includes academic and student life components.

Students (with a GPA below 2.0) are required to obtain advisement prior to registration.

Career program and some Liberal Arts students are advised through their department's registration activities.  Registration activities held from April through August and November through January, provide an opportunity to meet with departmental faculty while receiving an academic orientation and advisement and registration assistance. Some career students may also be advised in the Academic Advisement Center once registration activities have concluded.

Liberal Arts students are generally advised in the Academic Advisement Centers. Students receive academic orientation materials to prepare for the advising process on the Brighton Campus. Experienced faculty, counselors and advisors are available on a walk-in basis to provide information and to assist students with considering options and with making informed decisions about their educational plans.

Returning or Currently Enrolled Students:

Career students meet with faculty advisors in their departments for advisement and registration. Students should print their Degree Works worksheet which outlines program requirements and courses completed to bring to the advising session.
