Academic Advising & Support


Forge a Path to Success

Our mission is to empower MCLA students to discover and achieve their academic and professional goals. 

In the Office of Academic Advising & Support, you’ll find many resources to support your success such as academic advising, peer-led academic support, success coaching, and advising for students who are exploring their academic options.

Our experienced advisors are here to guide you through your academic journey. If you are an undeclared student, you will be paired with an advisor who works closely with you until you choose a major.

The Trailblazer Tutor Center, Writing Studio, and Math Drop-in Center are free resources and available to all students.


MCLA uses Navigate360, a student success management system, to help students connect to the campus from the palm of their hand and allows the campus community to coordinate comprehensive care and streamline processes for students to thrive in today's 21st Century learning environments. Navigate360 is a higher education solution from EAB.
