Academic Advising


Our priority is to protect the health and well-being of our students, staff, and community. As a precautionary measure against COVID-19, we are transitioning Academic Advising to virtual services until further notice.

We are available to serve you via phone, video conference or email on Monday-Thursday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Friday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Academic advising is more than selecting courses for an upcoming semester or making a plan to graduate. Students should initiate and maintain contact with advisors to discuss situations and issues affecting academic performance, including:  

  • Enrolling in Gecko Gear Up
  • Academic, professional and technical programs 
  • Exploration of educational and life goals
  • Information on campus resources and services
  • Selection and sequencing of courses  
  • University transfer options 
  • Work and family commitments

Advisors will listen and respond to personal interests and concerns, suggest useful college resources, share college and departmental policies and procedures, make appropriate referrals for student support services and provide guidance and assistance with academic, career and life goals.

In order to see an advisor you must have completed the Student Information Form.

Checksheets are tools used between students and advisors in order to outline courses needed for a particular program of study and help promote success. View the list of Advisement Check Sheets offered by the Maricopa Community Colleges for more details.


Transfer Equivalency

When meeting with an advisor, you will review your existing credits from other institutions. To help guide you through transfer equivalencies, please visit the Maricopa Community College Transfer Equivalency System.  Note that the equivalencies shown in the system are for informational purposes only and are subject to change without notice. Although new equivalencies are added each day, it is not possible to include all equivalencies. Speak with your advisor about previous coursework and applicability of your credits.
