Academic Advising

"My advisor helped me stay on track and achieve my goals."

Academic advising is crucial for your success, providing personalized guidance to help you navigate course selections, career goals, and academic challenges. With expert advisors, you gain the support and insight needed to make informed decisions, stay on track, and achieve your full potential.

All first-time, full-time, matriculating students must receive academic advisement prior to registering.


What you need to do:

1. Log into MyECC to find your advisor.

Log into your student account (MyECC) by entering in your username and password. Your username and initial password can be found at the MyUsername Check

For assistance, contact the ITS Service Desk at or call (716) 851-1835, Monday through Wednesday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.; and Thursday and Friday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Once you have logged in, click on the Workday icon. From the home Workday screen, select Academics. Academic Progress information can be found in the Academic Advising section of the Academics dashboard.  Your faculty advisor information can be found on the same dashboard under Important Contacts Support Network.

2. Get advised.

  • Meet with your faculty advisor to update your Academic Plan and collaborate on a schedule of classes for the upcoming semester. New General Studies students will have a faculty advisor assigned just before their second semester, please contact the General Studies Office at any campus for advisement for your first semester. 
  • Your faculty advisor and e-mail are listed in the Important Contacts Support Network section of the Academics dashboard in Workday.  Your Academic Progress is also accessed in this dashboard under Academic Advising.
  • You can consult the faculty/staff directory for department contact info (your department can tell you your assigned faculty advisor or secondary advisor during the summer months).
  • The Student Support Center on your campus can also assist you. Current students can visit our resource page on the MyECC portal.
  • If you need further assistance to be connected to your academic department, please call (716) 851-1322 or email

3. Register.

Once you have updated your Academic Plan in consultation with an advisor, you may register for class sections using this plan. Helpful videos to complete registration can be found here. You can also contact the Office of Registration for assistance: (716) 851-1467 or
