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-Matriculated(non-degree), Visiting, & High School Challenger Students

While advisement assistance at CCM is available, visiting students planning to return to their home college/university should consult with their home college/university academic advisor to ensure the classes they are taking at CCM will transfer back to their home institution.

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 (transcript/grade report) or a note from an advisor from your home institution approving your selection.
