Academic Advising

Academic advisors at Medicine Hat College collaborate with student development professionals, faculty, and stakeholders to empower students to make informed decisions, become self-reliant problem solvers, and active participants capable of developing a plan to realize their educational goals during their time at MHC.

Get Started

We are excited to help you plan your educational journey! To make the most of academic advising, please read the advising syllabus prior to an appointment with an advisor.


Tools for Success

For information on program requirements and academic regulations, the
Academic Calendar is the best place to start.

When it comes time to register for your
certificate, diploma, or applied degree classes, a Program Planning Guide will advise you of the courses you should be taking, and the appropriate sequence to take them in.

If you are enrolled in a University Studies program and plan to transfer to a university in Alberta, you are required to review the University Studies Planner. We encourage you to review this document as soon as you are accepted to your program, as it will help you plan your course registration. It will also guide you to important information at your transfer institution.

Would you like to know more about the courses you will be taking? Or perhaps you need help choosing an elective? Reading through Course Outlines/Syllabi can help you understand the learning outcomes of a course prior to registering.

When selecting courses in a University Studies program, you need to ensure the courses will transfer to your university. You can use the Alberta Transfer Guide to see whether MHC post-secondary courses and programs will transfer to other institutions. Please note –it is the student’s responsibility to ensure that their selected courses will transfer to their chosen university.
