Finding Your Advisor
- All degree seeking students must have an advisor. It is strongly suggested that you meet with your advisor prior to registering each term.
- If you do not have an advisor, you can contact the Advising Center at 541-278-5931 to have one assigned.
- If you have an advisor but are not sure who it is, you can contact the Advising Center to get their name and contact information.
- Approximately mid-term, you will start seeing notices around campus announcing the dates and times for pre-registration for the next term and reminding you to make an appointment with your advisor.
- Make an appointment to see your advisor, making sure you have prepared yourself for the appointment.
- Once you have cleared your schedule with your advisor you can go on-line to www.bluecc.edu, go to Wolf Web, login and register for classes. You will be unable to register on line for any classes with prerequisites you have not completed at BMCC. You can complete an Add/Drop slip and take it to a Service Counter to get registered for those classes.

Preparing for an Advising Appointment
Student’s Guide to Preparing for an Advising Appointment
So that the advising appointment will be beneficial, preparation is necessary. Doing the following prior to your appointment should improve your advising experience.
- Review your BMCC catalog for program/graduation requirements.
- If you are planning on transferring to a four year institution, gather all program/graduation requirement information for that school to take to your advising appointment.
- Look over the BMCC term schedule in the flyer that comes to your residence in the mail or go to the BMCC web site, click on College Resources, and then click on Class Schedules.
- Make tentative class choices before seeing your advisor. Be sure to include alternative selections. Check for prerequisites. You may even want to develop a trial schedule to take with you.
- Review your academic records by going to the Wolf Web, login, and under “Additional Resources” you can go to “Most Recent Term Grades” or under “Requesting Transcripts” you can print your entire unofficial transcript.
- Gather all paper resources to take with you to your advising appointment.
- Make a list of questions to ask your advisor. Think about the concerns you would like to discuss with your advisor.
- You can print your own degree audit by going on line to https://bmcc.advisor.conclusivesystems.net. Review your graduation requirements or look at “what if” scenarios if you are considering changing majors.
