Step 5: Educational Planning (CORE STEP)

Counseling and Advising 

All MJC students whose educational goals include: an Associate degree, a vocational certificate, undecided, completing requirements for university transfer, learning job skills, or improving basic skills are required to meet with a counselor/advisor before they register.

Counseling/advising is an important part of the successful educational process and it is essential to getting a smart start at Modesto Junior College. Following the orientation and assessment testing, students will have an opportunity to meet with a counselor/advisor to put together an abbreviated Educational Plan for the upcoming term.

Counselors recommend that during a student’s first semester that they enroll in a college Guidance class that offers students an opportunity to develop a complete Student Educational Plan, a plan that details the classes required and support services recommended for you to complete your educational goal.
