  • Mandatory Advising -  MATC requires students who score below a certain level on the Accuplacer test to meet with an MATC counselor or advisor to receive direction and assistance in selecting classes.  If you test below the mandatory advising level, you must meet with an MATC counselor or advisor before registering for classes.  For questions regarding academic counseling, please email or walk in to a Counseling and Advising Center on any one of our four campuses.
