Advising services are delivered by both staff advisors and faculty members and are available at all campuses as well as by phone & online to support a student’s academic goals. Academic advising is critical to your success, satisfaction, retention, and graduation from Mohave Community College. The role of an advisor is to help define and shape academic plans to meet educational goals by preparing academic progress plans and selecting classes. They have access to resources that will provide students with options as well as direction in various career choices. According to the students’ needs and educational goals, they will assist in creating a plan to stay on track for graduation.
New Students: Advisors can help you develop an education plan for goal achievement, select your class schedule for an upcoming semester, explore majors or careers, and connect you to campus resources. Advisors will use available information (e.g., high school transcripts, assessment scores and other data) to assist you in pursuing a program consistent with your education goals and level of preparation. New students will be required to meet with an advisor during their first semester to complete a detailed academic plan.
Continuing Students: You may enroll in courses for which you have completed the prerequisites without an advisor’s signature. However, you must meet in-person, online or by phone with an advisor if you:
- Select courses for which you have not met prerequisites.
- Change your degree, major, or catalog year.
- Need help to review your academic progress.
- Plan to transfer to a university.
- Experience academic difficulties.
- Have completed 30 credits towards your degree.
- Have completed 16 credits towards your certificate.
Note: Students can view their Degree Audit online on the JICS/myMohave system under Advising Tools. The Degree Audit is a computerized advising tool that details the requirements of the student’s program of study. The Degree Audit outlines progress toward academic goals; courses completed at MCC, transferred courses and awarded credits. Student GPA is also computed. Please contact a local campus advisor, firstname.lastname@example.org or MCC Connect for more information.
