Advisors provide comprehensive services from locating campus resources, career decision making, creating an academic plan and scheduling courses each semester.
All on campus, incoming students are assigned an advisor, when possible matched to the academic major of the individual, when they initially enroll in classes at Highland Community College. Your advisor acts as the resource person when you have questions. They can direct you to the appropriate campus office to help you get answers about your bill, get involved in a campus activity or organization, explain award information, request to test out of a class, find transfer information, figure GPA, and locate the financial aid office.
An advisor can assist if you have forgotten your MyHCC password and will usually teach your College Success and Orientation class if you are scheduled for the Fall semester. Advisors will monitor grades and attendance of students, but attendance and grades are the students’ responsibility. You can check with your advisor if you do not understand something on your MyHCC account and he or she can direct you to the person you need to see if there is a “stop” sign on your account. Your advisor will assist you with course scheduling and degree completion requirements. As a first semester sophomore your advisor will instruct you to request a graduation check, apply for graduation and schedule your exit testing.
Regional students will need to contact their regional coordinator in order to receive assistance with enrollment, registration, etc. They can direct you to the appropriate campus office to help you get answers about your bill, request to test out of a class, find transfer information, and figure GPA. The regional coordinators list a lot of helpful information at the HCC website; testing dates, times, locations, courses offered, and enrollment information.
