Maricopa Emergency Management System Alert

COVID-19 Update: The EMCC campus is open for classes, appointments, and walk-in services. Masks are required for everyone inside ALL buildings at EMCC.  All student support services are still available online. Students are encouraged to contact their instructors for additional information.

Who Is My Advisor?

Your advisor is based on your Field of Interest (FOI). For more information on how to select your preferred FOI, watch the video below:

Once you choose a Field of Interest, look in the list below to find your FOI advisors.

In most cases, you will have at least two advisors who cover your area that you can reach out to for help. 

Advisors can provide students with vital information about requirements for certificates, associate degrees, transfer information, admission requirements, and courses that will best prepare students for their particular major.

We recommend that you meet with someone on your FOI team at least once per year to help you plan the path to your educational goals.
