Welcome Video Image.jpgHarold 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:
