Advising, Career & Transfer Services

Decide on an academic program, prepare to transfer to a four-year institution or employment in the workforce, and stay on track to complete your degree. We are here to help.

Academic Advising: Advisor Connect

During the first semester of attendance, students are assigned a designated academic advisor.  Meet with your Academic Advisor on a regular basis to make sure you are on track to complete your degree or certificate.  Advisors can assist you with declaring a major, as well as with course planning and registration for each semester you attend HCC. 

Transfer Services  

Advisors can help you locate information and resources while providing guidance for successful transfer to a four-year college or directly into the workforce. Students are encouraged to meet regularly with their Advisor to review transfer requirements.
