Our Advising Curriculum, which includes several online Advising Workshops, is divided into five modules. Click on any of the images below to read more and plan your semester!

Student Success is a key area of academic advising. We want to help you practice your ability to organize, assess yourself as a student, communicate, collaborate, and think critically and creatively. If you are looking to improve your study habits, time management, or organization, this is the place for you.


Program of Study: There are over 30 degrees and certificates offered at Mount Wachusett Community College, and each one has its own set of requirements. Some programs are open to all students, while some are limited admission and require specific pre-requisite courses and applications. It is important that you know exactly which courses you need to take, and when to take them. Make sure you take all the right steps!


Career Exploration: Whether you’re determining which major is right for you or need assistance preparing your resume or applying for a job, we’re here to help. Use all the tools available to you before you graduate to find the right career.


Financial Literacy: Attending school is not free, but there are dozens of resources available to you that are. Learn more about applying for the FAFSA, researching scholarships, and managing your money. The ability to finance your life and education at the same time isn’t easy. You’ve got to balance tuition and books, transportation, rent or mortgage, utilities, groceries, and so much more. Don’t get overwhelmed, get educated!


Transfer: Advising encompasses many different things, and is personalized to your needs. MWCC participates in the MassTransfer program with public colleges throughout the state. Also, we have 3+1 agreements with private schools, and we regularly have admissions counselors from 4 year schools visiting our campus. Annually, students transfer from MWCC to more than 60 different colleges and universities across the United States! Get all the facts and details here.



In addition to all of the above tools, tips for using iConnect and DegreeWorks, information on how to register for courses online, and so much more is just a click away on our Resources page.


Note: In person advising workshops will resume in the fall 2017 semester. If you are MWCC faculty/staff that would like a member of the Advising Center to visit your classroom please contact the Director of Advising, Shanni Arsenault, at sarsenault13@mwcc.mass.edu for schedule options.
