New Students

Welcome! Students must first apply and be admitted to CT State before meeting with an advisor. Prior to your meeting, please ensure placement documents and transcripts are on file with the Admissions office. This will ensure you receive the best advising experience. Without placement information and/or transfer credits in the system, the GP Advising team will be limited in how they can assist you. 

Continuing Students 

(Currently enrolled) 
Continuing students are encouraged to connect with their Guided Pathways (GP) advisor to prepare for registration, and their faculty advisor or program coordinator to learn more about their degree path. To guarantee time with your advisor, please schedule an appointment. Advisors can meet with you in person, virtually, or over the phone. Same-day service is not guaranteed without an appointment.

    As a proud first-generation college student, I excelled because of the close-knit community and access to resources and support on campus. In turn, I am looking to be just that for the business students I will advise here at MxCC. I consider myself incredibly fortunate to work with students day-in and day-out to navigate their paths, engage in meaningful learning opportunities, and uncover their “why.” Connect with me below to begin our work together today!

      I look forward to helping you succeed at Middlesex Community College. One step into my office, you will notice I have two passions in life: My beautiful family and the Boston Red Sox. My wife and I share the love of our two daughters, Madison and Lillian. I understand not everyone loves baseball as much as I do. I promise not to hold it against you if you root for that other team. Good luck in your academic career here at Middlesex Community College. Let me know how I can help!
