Career Choices by Academic Program

Our Academic Programs page features the 300+ program options offered at MDC. You can also search and compare programs here, and each page includes information about potential careers and salaries. To change your major or program, please complete this form. We have many Career Exploration resources available to narrow down your interests.

MAP (My Academic Plan)

Once you decide on an academic pathway or program of study, you will need a MAP (My Academic Plan). This semester-by-semester plan outlines the courses you need to complete your degree or certificate. Your advisor will help you develop a MAP to stay on track. View your academic plan in Navigate or view your MAP in MDC's former system.

Did you know that MDC has several articulation agreements with a variety of colleges and universities? When developing a MAP, it is important to incorporate any transfer requirements. Take a look at our Transfer Agreements before you meet with an advisor.

Academic and Holistic Support

Academic Calendar

Academic Standing

The Standards of Academic Progress (SOAP) require students to maintain a 2.0 GPA or higher to remain in good standing and graduate from MDC. To support you in this effort, warnings are issued when your cumulative GPA falls below 2.0. If you see an “AS” service indicator or hold on your account, you will need to meet with the Director of Advisement or their designee and complete the Academic Suspension/Dismissal Questionnaire. Please contact an advisor if you have any questions about your academic standing.

SMART Action Plan

If you have taken a class multiple times and have not been able to pass, developing a SMART Action Plan with your academic discipline can help you outline the resources needed to succeed. Advisors can get this process started for you.

Graduation and Transfer Information

Applying for Graduation

We strongly recommend that you schedule an appointment with an advisor to ensure that you are on track to complete all graduation requirements the semester before you submit your graduation application.

Academic Requirements Report

An Academic Requirements Report is the official record keeper of graduation requirements. This is different than a MAP which is intended to help you organize and schedule your pathway/program courses. An advisor will help you understand both your Academic Requirements and MAP. Reviewing these documents once per semester is recommended.

Transfer Planning

MDC has several articulation agreements with a variety of institutions to facilitate a smooth transfer experience after you complete your degree. Visit the Transfer Information page and ask your advisor how to incorporate transfer requirements into your MAP.
