Midland College Pathways Advising Team provides intentional academic advising to help guide students in making academic and career choices.
Every student is assigned a Pathways Advisor based on their educational goal. The advisor and student will work collaboratively to establish a clear academic pathway and develop educational goals based on personal interests and abilities.
This partnership will require both participation and involvement from the student and advisor, thereby, leading to a successful education experience for the student.
To facilitate the advising process, advisors are available by appointment only. Students can reach their assigned advisor by logging onto their My MC Portal and selecting the name of the advisor. This will populate an email box where students may request an appointment.
When are students assigned an advisor?
Once students have completed all the steps for admissions and are ready to enroll, they will be assigned a Pathways Advisor. This advisor will stay with you until graduation (unless your major changes substantially.)
Transient Students are not assigned an advisor since they are not following a graduation plan at Midland College. Our transient team will work with these students.
What can students expect to learn when meeting with an advisor?
- Identify a pathway that aligns with their personal career goals and academic abilities;
- Create an educational plan according to pathways/meta-major;
- Develop decision-making skills regarding degrees and career goals;
- Navigate My MC Portal, MC email, Canvas, and other MC resources.
Students can expect their Pathways Advisor to:
- Help them understand Midland College policies, regulations and procedures;
- Help them plan out a schedule based on their pathway;
- Help them to explore career options and transfer requirements.
