All full and part-time matriculating students are assigned to academic advisors within the department of the major they are pursuing. Full-time faculty members are the primary providers of academic advisement at County College of Morris (CCM). Non-matriculating students are assigned to work with counselors in the Office of Counseling and Student Success for academic advisement. All academic advisors are available throughout the semester to engage in conversations that will assist students in meeting their educational goals and objectives. Advisors can assist students with a variety of activities such as selecting courses, reviewing curriculum requirements, changing majors, discussing plans to transfer and/or setting career goals.
Each week during the semester, faculty advisors hold regularly scheduled office hours to meet with students. In addition, special advisement sessions are held each semester the week before registration begins, during "Academic Advisement Week." Students are encouraged to meet with their faculty advisors at least once prior to the beginning of each semester to plan their curriculum requirements so they may graduate from the college in a timely manner.
Questions regarding advisor/advisee assignments should be directed to the Coordinator of Academic Advisement in the Student Community Center, Room 118, 973-328-5303. The advisement link on the CCM website, www.ccm.edu/studentLife/CampusServices/advisement/, also is an excellent source of information for prospective and current students.
