Counseling helps you stay on track and meet your goals

Academic counselors offer a range of college and career planning services. Students have three options to meet with a counselor: with your school's assigned counselor, with the counselor assigned to a special program you're a part of, or with any counselor with an open appointment spot. If you're undecided, meet with any school's success team or ask for help.

You have a team dedicated to your success

Counseling and advising are offered, most often, through your school's engagement center. This means you have people to support you that understand your program of study. Counselors and educational advisors are part of engagement center success teams. It’s important to know the different role each team member has in your educational journey.

Moreno Valley College's programs of study are divided into 6 academic schools to provide you a well-rounded education and support services. Your success team consists of counselors, educational advisors, peer mentors, and faculty liaisons. Through your school's engagement center, they provide academic and career counseling, access to resources, and help planning to graduate and transfer. Plus, if you're not sure or undecided, you may ask for help from any engagement center.

Academic counselors are primarily available by appointment. A counselor can assist students with:  

  • Creating a comprehensive student education plan (SEP) 
  • Updating SEPs for continuing or returning students 
  • Changes to major/program of study
  • Understanding academic progress and progress probation
  • Dismissal and re-admit contracts
  • Transfer and/or graduation advising
  • Career guidance
  • Transcript evaluation
  • Review the consequences of dropping or withdrawing from classes
  • Matriculation appeal and prerequisite validation

If you need more than 15 minutes to complete paperwork or need extended educational or career advising, be sure to book an appointment.

Educational advisors are available via drop-in and appointment. An educational advisor can assist students with: 

  • Completing the MVC application
  • College orientation
  • Creating a first semester student education plan (for new students)
  • Registering and enrolling in classes
  • Navigating MyPortal and EduNav platforms
