Throughout the year, the College hosts individual visits from admission counselors, representing over 30 colleges and universities. The College sponsors various college fairs per year. The Private Illinois Colleges and Universities (PICU) Fair features private transfer institutions.
Students and advisors work together to develop a personalized educational plan by outlining specific course work that applies to academic major requirements at the intended transfer college or university.
Please call Academic Advising to set up an appointment with an advisor at 708-656-8000 Ext.2250
Academic advisors can provide students with information regarding scholarships that are being offered by specific colleges, universities, and private agencies.
Because academic advising has much in common with teaching, advisors can adapt many of the same tools they use in the teaching environment to their work with advisees. One such tool is our MC Advising Syllabus.
Typically, a course syllabus lays out an instructor’s philosophy and goals for the course, along with the expectations for both the instructor and the students, and some important policies and dates.
In the same way, the MC Advising Syllabus can describe the nature and purpose of the advising relationship, establish expectations for the Academic Advisor and student, and outline important policies and dates. Our Advising Syllabus can help provide structure for your advising sessions and it establishes from the beginning the nature of the relationship.
