MxCC has a tremendous amount of support to help you achieve all of your academic goals.
To be sure you are taking the right courses in the right sequence to fulfill your ambitions and your degree requirements, all students receive academic advising from our faculty and staff.
New students are required to attend a “walk in” advising session at the beginning of their first semester.
Additionally, students are assigned a faculty advisor to help throughout each semester at MxCC.
New students will receive a letter with the name of their advisor in early November (for fall semester) or April (for spring semester)
These advisors help students make an “Academic Plan” which serves as the student’s roadmap while at MxCC.
Get to know your advisor so he or she can get to know you! Advisors pay careful attention to each student’s interests, abilities, skills and career focus. Working together, they help students explore educational and career opportunities, internal and external resources, and other valuable materials.
Students meet with their advisors during Advising Week which is held each semester. This is an opportunity for students to discuss their current semester progress, academic goals, transfer plans, and courses for the next semester. Visit the Academic Advising page for more details on this important process.
Be sure to discuss the cross registration privilege with your advisor. This service allows students to take courses at any Connecticut state college if they are unable to get a required course at MxCC.
Students in the MxCC Honors Program, can select their own program of study and use the Honors Program to fulfill General Education requirements. Students who are not sure of which major to declare will be enrolled in the Liberal Arts and Sciences program.
MxCC also has an Academic Support Services and Minority Affairs office which oversees the recruitment, retention and academic success of minority students, working closely with admissions, tutoring, career, academic counseling, and other student services. For details, visit Academic Support Services or contact Irod Lee, Director of Academic Support Services & Minority Affairs, at (860) 343-5715.
International students with questions about immigration procedures, the college, academic issues, customs and transitioning to life in the United States are encouraged to speak with our Admissions Office professional staff.
