ADVISING AT HCC

Highland advisors are helpful professionals that are

a key resource whether you are transferring to a

four-year institution or completing a vocational degree

or certificate.

A Highland advisor is the friend you need when it comes

to any of the following: developing an educational plan, choosing a field of study, exploring transfer schools, scheduling classes for the next semester, checking the completion status of a degree or certificate, finding

campus and community resources, understanding academic policies and procedures and discussing

other academic concerns.

Student Advisors are located on the first floor of the Student/ Conference Center; Building H. Services are available by appointment during regular business hours and evenings, and during published walk-in times.

For an appointment, call 815-599-3573 or email us. Veterans and current military personnel may receive specialized assistance from the Veterans Coordinator who is also a Student Advisor.

Meet our Advisors

How do I know who my advisor is? Student advisors at Highland Community College are assigned areas in which to specialize. However, they are also cross trained, which means that any of them can answer questions about transferring, articulation, and other issues related to any field of study.
