Advising For Parents

Advisors provide students with information and guidance as it relates to program/curriculum requirements, academic policies/procedures, and many other academic issues and concerns.

Advisors will review transfer credits for applicability to programs of study, assist with course selection, and refer students, when necessary, to support services and any other relevant campus resources.

Ultimately, students are responsible for their education. Students should make sure to register for their courses on time, familiarize themselves with college policies and procedures, and take an active role in their education by working with their advisor to develop an educational plan.

We refer to those plans as MAPs, (My Academic Pathway), formerly known as EDPs.

We offer students a variety of ways to receive advising including drop-in hours three days a week, online advising opportunities and 30-minute advising appointments.

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) prevents Lansing Community College from releasing your student's information to anyone without his or her written consent. You are welcome to join the student in the initial meeting with an advisor to address individual questions and concerns. For your student to develop independence and self-sufficiency, it is vital that he or she take the initiative to meet with his or her advisor and campus personnel individually throughout their journey at LCC.
