Advising

Highland advisors are helpful professionals that are a key resource whether you plan on transferring to a four-year institution after Highland, jumping starting your trade, or complete a degree or certificate.

Your advisor will help you

  • develop an educational plan
  • choosing a field of study
  • explore transfer schools
  • register for classes
  • check the completion status of a degree or certificate
  • find campus and community resources
  • understanding academic policies and procedures
  • discuss other academic concerns

Student Advisor offices are located on the first floor of the Student/Conference Center (building H). We’re available Monday-Friday from 8 a.m.-5 p.m., during the semester or Monday-Thursday during the summer. 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

Like most collegiate systems, the Highland student advisors are specialists in particular program areas, but they are also cross-trained. So, any advisor can answer questions about transferring, articulation, and other question related to any field of study.
