ARE YOU A RETURNING OR TRANSFER STUDENT?

If so, you are not considered a new student. Transfer and continuing MSJC students can still meet with a counselor virtually. Returning or transfer students will need to make an hour-long appointment to look at courses they’ve completed and to create an educational plan.
