Academic Advising and Career Guidance

Welcome to Academic & Career Advising

Academic and Career Advising is one of the most critical components of student success! Washtenaw Community College is here to support and encourage students in their educational journey. We want to help you develop meaningful educational and career plans that meet your life goals while studying at WCC.

COVID-19 Service Note

During the Winter 2021 semester, we will not be offering any student services in-person on campus. We are, however, providing the same level of service to students remotely through telephone and virtual video conferencing.

Meet With Your Advisor

While the campus has restricted access, advising appointments are being done remotely. There are many options for meeting with an advisor; virtual drop-in, scheduled appointments, through email at [email protected] or calling 734-677-5102 to speak with an advisor over the phone.

During high traffic times such as the week before the semester, first week of class,  or start of registration, we only offer virtual drop-in advising, as appointments are limited.

Virtual Drop-In Advising

During our virtual drop-in advising you will be able to meet with an advisor individually in a Zoom breakout room.

Monday - Thursday 12:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.
12:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.


Schedule an Appointment

Scheduled appointments are available for students during non-peak times. *Please note, scheduled appointments are required for these specific appointment topics: SAP Appeals, Personal Counseling, Mandatory Nursing Advising, Career Testing

Using Financial Aid?

Did you know, your enrollment impacts your financial aid eligibility? Federal Regulations require you to be in an eligible program of study to receive federal financial aid. The amount of financial aid is determined by the courses you take that are part of your program.

Plan Your Degree

Know what you want to achieve? Meet with your academic advisor, case manager or learning support specialist to complete an academic plan. This process involves taking all of the courses required to graduate under your chosen program and mapping them out, semester by semester, in an order that paves the way to your success.
