Making the Grade! Academic Support for You

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” or “in-person” advising session at the beginning of their first semester.

Additionally, students are assigned a faculty advisor to help throughout each semester at MxCC. Chlick the Advisory Tab in to determine your assigned advisor.

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 are expected to meet with their advisors as they prepare to register for next semester courses. 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.

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 Enrollment Services professional staff.
