Find Your Advisor

Advisors are both professional staff and faculty – we aim to assign you someone appropriate to your program of study.
Finding your advisor

Students enrolled in a degree or certificate program are assigned to a faculty or staff advisor based on their major. Your academic advisor is assigned to you during the first week of your first semester. Until then, all students are welcome in the Advising Center.

Non-matriculated students (meaning students who are not enrolled in a degree or certificate program but are taking GCC classes) are advised by Advising Center staff. Any advisor in the office can help!

1) Log in to MyGCC

2) At the bottom of the page, click “View Profile” next to your name to open your Dashboard:

3) Your assigned advisor(s) will show in the middle column:

4) You can use the Staff Directory to find your advisor’s contact information. If you’re having trouble, email the Advising Center at advising@gcc.mass.edu for help.

Most faculty advisors are not on contract during January and summer. During these periods – or any time you are having trouble getting in touch with your assigned advisor – all students are welcome in the Advising Center!

Changing your advisor

Most students are able to change their advisor. If you want to make a change, complete the Change Advisor form in MyGCC:

This form gives you the option to request a specific advisor or to have the Advising Center choose someone for you (you don’t have to know who you want to work with in order to request a change).

When you change your major, your advisor will be updated to someone in your new program of study, whether or not you submit the Change of Advisor form.
