Academic Advisement

Advisement Options for Student Success

  • Visit with an Academic Advisor on campus at the Enrollment Center or online.
  • Work with your faculty advisor to plan your courses in Student Planning
    Faculty advisors will guide and support you in successfully pursuing your educational goals at Mercer County Community College, while the advisors you met on our first day of registration will guide you through the admissions process.

General information, interpretation of CSPT (college skills placement test) results, and scheduling are provided by trained professional staff and faculty members. A new student caseload approach to advising assists new students throughout the enrollment process:

  1. At the initial advising appointment, the advisor interprets the placement scores (or previous college transcripts), helps define the student's major, helps the student prepare financially, and introduces the student to related support services.
  2. After the initial appointment, the advisor stays in contact with the student acting as a resource person until the first day of classes.
  3. During the first semester, the student is assigned a faculty advisor according to his/her chosen program of study, who will assist in planning future educational goals and registration of courses until graduation.

How will academic advisement help me?

You have committed to college, now we want to commit to you. Your advisor will work individually with you during your first semester at Mercer.

Your advisor can help answer questions about:

  • College Resources
  • Choosing a major
  • Paying for classes
  • Connecting with college life
  • Completing a Financial Aid Appeal Reinstatement Form (if applicable)
