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:

Full-time students are required 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.

Part-time, Readmitted(with a GPA below 2.0) and transfer students are encouraged to seek advisement prior to registration, and are also welcome to attend the orientation program.

Career program and some Liberal Arts students are advised through their department's Program Advisement and Registration (PAR) activities. PAR programs, 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 PAR programs have concluded.

Liberal Arts students are generally advised in the Academic Advisement Centers. Students receive academic orientation materials
and view a video 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 CAPP Report which outlines program requirements and courses completed to bring to the advising session.
