Morgan Community College

ADVISING

Students are encouraged to discuss educational objectives as well as personal goals with their advisors before registering for classes.

Advising for New Students

New student advising appointments can be made by calling the MCC Student Services Office or MCC Center offices. After the initial consultation with the intake advisor, the new student will be directed to a faculty advisor who will assist the student with ongoing advising and academic needs.

Degree Check Automated Advising

Morgan Community College utilizes Degree Check, an automated advising tool. Degree Check is accessed through the MyMCC student portal under the Student tab.

Degree Check

Degree Check:

  • Compares student coursework to program course requirements
  • Assists with course selection
  • Speeds time to graduation/program completion
  • Available 24/7 via MyMCC
  • The "What-If" function allows students to see how their coursework applies to other programs
  • Gives advice through hyperlinks to MCC Catalog information, each semester's Schedule of Classes, transcripts, and FAQs.

Advising for Continuing Students

Continuing students should contact a faculty academic advisor by setting up a personal appointment, or requesting advising be done via email or telephone. Students should consult regularly with their academic advisors to assure they are on track toward their academic goals.

Choosing a Program of Study

A student declares an intended program of study at MCC on the Admission Application. A list of currently available programs may be found in the Degrees and Certificate sections of the catalog or online. Students are responsible for studying their program requirements in the Morgan Community College catalog and by utilizing Degree Check.

Undeclared Students

An undeclared student is one who has not declared a program of study and is not working toward a certificate or a degree at MCC. Undeclared students are generally not eligible to receive financial aid. Students who are undecided should meet with an academic advisor to discuss their educational and occupational goals to determine if they should declare a program of study.

Changing a Program of Study

A student may change a program of study by completing and submitting a 'Field of Study Change' or a 'Student Records Change' form to the Student Services Office or MCC Center. Changing a program of study may result in a change in degree/certificate requirements and may affect financial aid eligibility, so it is recommended that they consult an academic advisor prior to making a change.

Transfer Advising

MCC strongly recommends that transfer students seek assistance from an academic advisor to plan a transferable curriculum.
