Make MCNY Yours

From orientation for new students—and ongoing advisement for existing ones—to a variety of social and networking opportunities, at MCNY you’ll find the services you need to succeed. As the first step in the registration process, all students must meet with an adviser in the Office of Student Services. It’s the first of at least four contacts—emails, phone calls, classroom visits or appointments—you’ll have with your adviser each semester.

One-on-one advisement is an essential component to the college experience because it positions students to regularly evaluate their academic progress. During advisement, your advisor will review your academic record with you and help you plan a course schedule for the upcoming semester, preparing you to continue to work towards your degree. When you complete advisement, you will be pre-registered, pending final approval from the registrar. To ensure you are ready to begin classes on the first day of the new semester, it’s best to meet with your advisor as early as possible. Stop by the Office of Student Services or schedule an appointment to meet with an advisor.

Student Self Service

MCNY student self service is the fast, simple way for you to print enrollment verification certificates, view your enrollment history and enrollment verifications provided at your request, check on loan deferments sent to your lenders—and more.
