Prospective Students

If you're just exploring your career and program options, our faculty and academic advisors are happy to provide guidance no matter what stage you're in. Completing the admissions application and placement process before meeting with us, however, is especially helpful if you'd like to register for classes during your initial meeting.  

Transferring to LMC from another institution? Having your official transcripts on file and evaluated before your advising appointment will ensure the most productive conversation with your advisor about what requirements are completed, outstanding, and allow you to register for classes during your initial meeting.

New Students 

If you're a new student and want to take six or more credit hours, it is essential to meet with an advisor. They'll help you plan your class schedule and get you on track to meet your goals.  

Don't wait to make an appointment, but before you meet, you must complete your admissions application and placement process so your advisor can register you for your classes. 

Current Students

As a current Lake Michigan College student, you are encouraged to meet with an Academic Advisor or Faculty Advisor prior to each semester and anytime you have questions.
