New & Returning Students

All new and returning students start at the Advising Center. You are a new student if you have never taken classes at GCC before. You are a returning student if you have taken classes at GCC before but have been away for at least one semester. We will help you determine your course placement and next steps. You only need 20-30 minutes for this initial conversation! Some students may need to take placement tests. Others will be ready to register. Either way, the advisor you talk to will get you to the appropriate next step!

When new students are ready to register they will be scheduled an appointment with an advisor knowledgeable about their degree or certificate program. These appointments typically take 30 minutes to an hour.

Current Students

Advisors can help you register and make changes to your course schedule, complete a degree audit, make an academic plan, discuss long-term goals, and check-in if you have questions or concerns about your semester.

All students are assigned to a faculty or staff advisor based on their major. You can find your advisor by logging in to your MyGCC account. Non-matriculated students (meaning students who are not enrolled in a degree or certificate program but are taking GCC classes) are all advised by the Advising Center.

Start by contacting your assigned advisor. If you are unable to connect with them or still need help after meeting with them, any student can contact the Advising Center. The best way to make an appointment is by calling (413) 775-1339.

Any student can send advising questions or concerns to . Depending on the extent of the issue, you may be asked to make an appointment.
