Getting the right help at the right time is what academic advising is all about. You can make your time in college more meaningful and your path toward a degree more efficient by meeting with an academic advisor at the start of your college career and at least once each year until you graduate.

Why see an advisor?

Advisors help you assess your potential, set educational goals, and locate helpful resources. They can assist you with selecting a major and completing admission requirements. Come see an advisor to map out your Mat-Su College degree plan and for assistance furthering your education beyond MSC.

If you experience difficulties adjusting to college or encounter a barrier to your success, an academic advisor can work with you to find resources or help you make important academic decisions. The can suggest new strategies to improve your study skills, time management, and test taking abilities.

Advisors are available year round and are located within Student Services in the Fred & Sara Machetanz Building (FSM) Room 101.

Call 907-745-9762 for an Advising Appointment (bring a photo ID to your appointment).

  1. Apply for Admission at Mat-Su College or UAA.
