Advising Specialties

MWCC Students in Class

Our Advising Curriculum, which includes several online Advising Workshops, is divided into five modules.

Program of Study

There are over 70 degrees and certificates offered at MWCC, 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 (mostly health programs). 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!

Annually, students transfer from MWCC to more than 60 different colleges and universities across the United States! MWCC participates in the MassTransfer program with public colleges throughout the state. Also, we have 3+1 agreements and 2+2 agreements with private schools, and we regularly have admissions counselors from 4 year schools visiting our campus. Get all the facts and details here.

Student Success

We want to help you practice your ability to organize, assess yourself as a student, communicate, collaborate, and think critically and creatively. We’ll show you how to make your time matter and how to take successful notes. If you are looking to improve your study habits, time management, or organization, this is the place for you.







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 for schedule options.
