About Macon State
Macon State College is committed to providing enhanced advising to all students.
The mission of the Macon State College Academic Advising Program is to assist students with the development of meaningful educational plans leading to academic success, graduation, job placement, and/or entry into graduate and professional programs.
All students are strongly encouraged to meet with advisors to assist with course selection and academic planning. Many academic programs require specific sequencing in order to reach degree completion in a timely manner. Also, students frequently benefit from guidance in exploring potential majors and coordinating career goals with education opportunities or study aboard programs.
Students are advised by an Academic Advisor in the School of their major field of study. Each School has an Academic Advising Center that provides academic advising and assistance to freshmen, sophomores, and new transfer students. Juniors and Seniors are advised by their assigned faculty advisor.
Students are reminded that they are ultimately responsible for their own academic program and course load. An advisor can only advise, and should never replace individual student responsibility.
