W​hat is Advisement & Registration and how can you help me?

Advisors assist students with selecting a program of study, enrolling in the proper coursework, find appropriate campus resources to ensure academic success, and help achieve educational goals. All "new-to-college" students are encouraged to meet with an advisor and complete Placement Tests to help ensure proper enrollment in classes. Students must meet with an advisor when nearing graduation or transferring to another college or university.

What is the Course Applicability System (CAS)?
AZCAS is a statewide, online, interactive advising tool. It provides information on courses, course equivalencies, and program requirements at Arizona institutions of higher education. For students who become CAS members, CAS provides information on how specific course work will transfer and apply towards a degree at a CAS institution. See the instructions for using AZCAS.
Where can I get a check sheet for my major?
Your check sheet is determined by your major, catalog year, and transfer school. It is best to see a Transfer Advisor to ensure you have the correct check sheet. Check sheets can be downloaded from the check sheet page as well. For additional information and rules governing the degrees see ATASS. This web site is a tool to assist students in selecting the appropriate degree pathway. Students are strongly encouraged to seek academic advisement.
Can an MCC Transfer Advisor tell me what classes will transfer to an out-of-state school?
MCC Transfer Advisors can advise to Arizona public universities, BYU, and schools who have established articulation agreements with MCCCD. See that list of schools here. If the school you would like to attend does not have an articulation agreement with MCCCD, you will need to contact that school's admissions/advising office directly.
How will my MCC credits transfer to a university and/or be applicable to my major?
To see how MCC courses (or courses from any other Arizona public community college) will transfer to an Arizona public university, use the Course Applicability System. AZCAS contains the Course Equivalency Guide (CEG), Transfer Guides, and Planning Guides.
