About Academic Advising

All MTC students have an assigned academic advisor who provides academic and career guidance. Your advisor can help you create an academic plan, register for classes, and keep you on track to graduate.  Advisors can also answer questions about your area of study and future career, help you transition to college, explain policies and procedures, provide support for academic and personal challenges, and connect you with other services at MTC and in the community to support your success.

Advising Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide comprehensive and student-centered advising services to empower students to achieve their academic, career, and personal goals.  We are committed to building relationships with our students and creating a caring, supportive, and inclusive environment that fosters their success.  Through our advising services, we encourage student engagement, academic excellence, and lifelong learning, while promoting a sense of community and personal responsibility among our students.

Advising Expectations

Your relationship with your advisor is a partnership.  You can expect your advisor to respond to your communications, be knowledgeable and informative, support your skill development to be a successful student, help develop your academic plan, and follow through with our commitments.  We are here to help you!  Advisors expect you to come to appointments prepared, ask questions and communicate your needs, respond to communications, use provided resources, and follow through with action items.  Advisors work together with you to do everything that they can to help you achieve your educational goals. 

Our Advisors

MTC utilizes both professional staff advisors and faculty advisors, depending on your program of study.

Most students will be assigned to an Academic Advisor in the Advising and Disability Services Office.  This is a full-time, professional staff member who will work with you throughout your time at MTC or until you are accepted into a limited enrollment program.  Current students can see who their advisor is by logging into their My Plan account.  New students will be assigned to an advisor after the first new student advising meeting. For more information.

Students accepted to a limited enrollment program (healthcare, social work, or law enforcement academy) will be assigned to their program director or a faculty advisor in their program at time of admission to the program. Please contact your program/faculty advisor directly if you need assistance.
