Academic Advising

The goal of our academic advising plan is to provide all students with accurate, timely
information to assist students with all aspects of academic planning throughout their
undergraduate studies.  All currently registered students are assigned an academic
advisor.

 

Academic advisors assist students with the following:

·         Degree plan development

·         Course selection to ensure degree attainment

·         Comprehension of course expectations

·         Familiarity with academic and college policies, procedures, and requirements

·         Identification of strategies and resources for academic success

·         Awareness of campus resources

·         Assistance with timely and satisfactory progress toward degree completion

Our Advising Structure
Students will be advised according to their classification as a first-time degree
seeking or returning student.  Students who are first-time degree seeking
students will be advised by their College Survival instructor and returning
students will be advised by a program advisor based on their declared major of
study.  Non-degree seeking students will not be assigned an advisor but can
seek advisement in the Registrar’s office.  International students will be advised
by the Registrar.


Where Can I Find Out Who Has Been Assigned As My Advisor?

Login to Campus Cruiser and double click on “My Account” on the first gray
toolbar.  Then double click on “My MSCC Profile” under Current Community on
the left side of the screen.  Scroll down and your academic advisor’s name will
