Academic Advising

Students at MCAD have access to full-time advising staff in the Student Affairs Office, as well as faculty advisors. When a student declares their major, they are assigned a faculty advisor who assists them in planning an academic program appropriate to their degree and personal goals.

Prior to registration each semester, appointments with an advisor are set up for seniors, juniors, and sophomores who have declared a major. Students will register for classes during the advising appointment. During these appointments students will also discuss course requirements, discuss academic goals and planning. 

Students who are freshmen or undeclared will be advised in Student Affairs. Students will make their own appointment. Emails with instructions will be sent to students. 

Important dates, deadlines and information about advising and registration will be posted on and sent via email to all students. Please read through the on-line resources for more information on advising at MCAD.

PLEASE NOTE for TRANSFER STUDENTS: Some areas of study, such as Animation and Product Design, have a curriculum that must be taken sequentially with courses that require prerequisites. Due to the curriculum structure and intensity, students who pursue these areas of study will be required to complete a minimum of three and a half (3.5) years at MCAD.
