Academic Advising

The academic advisors at City College at MSU Billings are here to help you with your academic success. We are available during walk-in times and by scheduled appointments and can assist you with:

  • Accuplacer Testing - MSU Billings utilizes the elementary algebra and reading comprehension placement tests

  • New Student and Current student registration

  • Creating a plan of study

  • Transcript evaluations

Advising Appointments

We are happy to work with you in person, over the phone, or by email to discuss your academic plans.  Appointments are available with each advisor by calling (406) 247-3019 or (800) 565-6782 x3019.  Appointments are generally scheduled for 30-45 minutes.


 If you haven’t met your advisor, are unsure of who your advisor is, or are planning to change majors and need to meet with a different advisor, please contact us and we are happy to assist you.  Each advisor also has some walk-in times available throughout the week.  They are designed for brief (10-15 minute) sessions. 


As advisors we can assist you with selection of courses and academic issues, but the ultimate responsibility for meeting graduation requirements belongs to you, the student.


 Assessment Testing - Accuplacer

All entering students and transfer students who have not completed their General Education requirements in English or mathematics must take the Accuplacer Tests. For further information, contact Jacket Student Central at (406) 247-3019.


 As part of the Accuplacer Testing, you will visit with an academic advisor to determine appropriate math and English courses in which to begin.
