Mission Statement

As an integral part of the educational experience, the Advising Department at Harold Washington College empowers students to take charge of their academic, career, and personal goals through shared responsibility between the student and advisor.           
           
          

Why Meet With an Advisor?    

Advisors are professionals who guide students from new student orientation to graduation. We encourage you to get to know your advisor and to take advantage of the wide range of information and services he or she can provide. Advisors will help you  clarify your  goals, create a plan, and explore resources to help you reach your goals. They can also assist with problem-solving, explain policies and procedures, and refer to campus resources. Student can make an appointment with an College Advisor in two ways:               

1) Log into GradesFirst, a web-based student support tool, here.  (Unfamiliar with GradesFirst? Watch this short video on how to use it to make an appointment.)     

2) Contact the Advising Department to set-up an appointment to meet with your College Advisor. Contact information is available on the right column of this page.             

To get the most out of your advising appointment see helpful advising tips. You should meet with your College Advisor at least once each semester, more often if needed.                                            

                    

See your Advisor if you are:

  • Struggling with your current classes; help is available
  • Unsure about your education or career goals and options
  • Unsure if your academic plan is aligned with your academic goals (go to my.ccc.edu>My Academic Plan> Academic Planning> My Planner to see your current academic plan) 
  • Planning to transfer to a 4-year institution
  • Confused about your academic progress or degree requirements
  • Trying to use credits at a non-CCC college or university toward your graduation requirements
  • Looking for an academic plan to help guide you term-by-term and to help you easily register
  • If you have a question about academics, services available to you, or anything else.
