Academic counseling is provided to assist you in understanding the various types of curriculum programs available at Montgomery Community College. Clarification of program requirements and prerequisites are carefully explained. The Counselor works closely with the Enrollment Office, the Financial Aid Office, and other offices on campus. Individuals applying for Forest Management Technology, Gunsmithing, and Allied Health programs (Dental Assisting, Medical Assisting, and Practical Nursing) should contact the Enrollment Office for detailed information about acceptance into those limited-enrollment programs.
Career counseling sessions can be tailored to your individual needs. Together, we can develop and carry out plans for meaingful vocational achievement, success, and satisfaction. Career assessments are available online as well as in paper-pencil formats. Career assessment help you better understand your own interests, skills, values, and other traits. There are no right or wrong answers on the assessments; we just ask that you complete the assessments truthfully so you get an accurate picture of your situation. The Counselor will review the results with you. Those results can help you find the major and the career path you will find most fulfilling. Based on the results, the Counselor can link you with the appropriate MCC program faculty so you may further discuss any questions you may have about classes, the job outlook in that field, program expectations, etc.
As graduation approaches and students begin applying for jobs, the Counselor can assist students with formatting cover letters, completing job applications, creating resumes, and preparing for job interviews. Assistance with resume writing is also available using software available on computers in the Counseling & Career Development Center. Upon student request, a mock interview can be set up and video-recorded for students to gain interview experience and receive feedback.
Personal counseling is provided to assist students in relation to decision-making skills and personal/life skills. When necessary, the Counselor (with the student's permission) may make referrals to community resources or agencies if additional assistance is needed.
Students seeking to transfer to a four-year college or university should meet with the Director of Academic Advising. The Director is available to answer specific questions about the appropriate courses to take for transfer. For more information, visit the Academic Advising Center.
The Counseling & Career Development Center (CCDC), located in Building 100, is equipped with 10 computers available for students to use to access WebAdvisor, career and personality assessments, and resume writing software. CCDC staff provides placement testing services for incoming curriculum students as well as annual TEAS testing for Practical Nursing applicants. Housed in the CCDC is a collection of pamphlets and books pertaining to college success, interview success, and job market analysis, as well as information from various North Carolina four-year colleges and universities for students seeking to transfer. Students who cannot visit the campus may contact CCDC staff who will provide them with website links for career and personality assessment inventories and student success information.
Workshops based on students' needs will be held throughout the year in the Center and we encourage recommendations for topics from students, staff, and faculty. CCDC staff are also available to assist with class sessions pertaining to career assessment inventories, resume writing, and mock interviewing. Arrangements with the Center's staff need to be made in advance by the instructor.
