Academic Advisement At CCM


Degree-Seeking Students (Matriculated)

If you are pursuing a degree and/or certificate you will be assigned to a Faculty Advisor/s (from your Academic Majors/Disciplines) within the first few weeks of the semester.  For students in their first year, you are also assigned to a Student Success Specialist (SSS) from The Academic Success Center (TASC).

You can communicate with  both your Faculty Advisor/s or your SSS through Student Planning (click on the ‘Plan and Schedule’ box, then on the ‘Advising’ tab, write a note, save the note, click on ‘Request Review’).

For more information on your Faculty Advisor/s click on ‘Who Is My Academic Advisor?

If you are a first-time, new or transfer student seeking a degree or certificate – once you have met the college’s admission requirements and submitted all the necessary documentation (to the Admissions office), you will receive notification to your “home/personal” email (the email on your admissions application) on your next steps for advisement and registration.

Non-Degree-Seeking Students (Non-Matriculated/Visiting)

If you are Visiting or Non-Matriculated student (not seeking a degree/certificate) and are in need of academic advisement, you are assigned to work with a member of the Counseling staff in the Counseling and Wellness Center (CWC). You may email counseling@ccm.edu or call 973-328-5140 to connect with a Counselor.

If you are planning to enroll in a course that requires a prerequisite, you must show proof of having met that prerequisite through prior testing, college course work, or if you are a visiting student from another college – a note from your advisor approving your course selection/s. This information, along with the specific course name and section number, should be coordinated through CCM’s Records and Registration Office. Click here for more information.

After you have applied and your application has been processed, you will receive notification to your “home/personal” email (the email on your admissions application) that you are eligible for registration.
