​​Harold Washington College Advising 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.      

We are still here to assist you! Meet With Your Advisor:

 The Advising Office is open Monday - Wednesday: 9:00 am - 5:00 pm, Thursday: 9:00 am - 6:00 pm, and Friday: 9:00 am - 1:00 pm. Students can meet with a College Advisor in two ways:                  

  • Virtual appointment: To make an appointment, log into Navigate​, our web-based student support tool. You can get there through My.CCC.edu, or download the app.  Click the "Schedule a​n Appointment" button and follow the prompts to pick a time that works for you. If you would like step-by-step guidance to making an appointment, you can watch this short video: https://bit.ly/2RR0I3T​
