Academic Advising and Course Schedules

All degree-seeking students at Manhattan Tech have the opportunity and are encouraged to meet with an academic or faculty advisor.

Students who are accepted into the Associate Degree Nursing, Medical Laboratory Technology, or Practical Nursing programs will be advised by the program faculty advisor.

Academic advisors will provide advising services for all other program students as well as Pre-Allied Health students: Pre-MLT, Pre-PN, and Pre-ADN.

It is the student’s responsibility to initiate and prepare for advising appointments. Advisors may assist students in the following areas: goal setting, campus and program information, referrals to campus resources, and interpreting institutional policies, procedures, and requirements. Students share responsibility for a positive and successful college experience and are expected to participate by attending program orientations, knowing academic policies and procedures, knowing academic calendar deadlines and degree/program requirements, consulting with an advisor when necessary, and taking action when recommendations are made, as well as scheduling and keeping appointments with advisors.

In planning a class schedule, the student should keep in mind the degree and graduation requirements of Manhattan Tech. The final responsibility for correct course selection lies with the student.

Non-degree seeking students may request an advisor assignment by contacting the Student Services office at 785-587-2800.
