What is Academic and Career Advising? 

All admitted students will work with an Academic and Career Advisor to plan their path to graduation — and make sure that path lines up with their overall career goals. After the first advising session, students will be assigned to an Academic and Career Advisor who supports their School of Study. Students will continue to work with this advisor every semester. The MTC Academic and Career Advisor is the go-to person for degree planning, registration support, and connections to resources that will help students become an MTC graduate. View the different student statuses below to determine how you can connect with an Academic and Career Advisor.
