The Transitional Studies Department helps students prepare for Monroe Community College Career or Transfer Programs. Students admitted to the College through Transitional Studies (TS01) will register for a combination of courses on the basis of a registration/advisement session with a member of the Transitional Studies faculty. An evaluation of courses and/or credits will be made near the end of each semester and a change to another College program may be made as a result of that evaluation.

The Transitional Studies Department serves both students enrolled in the Transitional Studies Program and students in degree or certificate programs. Students receive advisement, orientation, instruction, and support geared for their success in college. Through this assistance, underprepared students build skills in reading, writing, math, study skills, and college orientation. They also build their confidence in their academic success. Student Support Services staff work with the faculty of the Transitional Studies Department to ensure that students obtain timely assistance and appropriate feedback as they progress in their coursework.
