Henderson Community College academic advising empowers students to become responsible for their own academic success. Faculty advisors are committed to providing accurate and comprehensive academic advising. Working together, students and advisors develop one-on-one relationships and share responsibility to assist students to make choices and define goals; guide students through administrative processes; connect students to campus services and resources; and encourage the intellectual growth of students.
HCC has adopted an Advising Syllabus for all students to use for their advising appointment. Please print a copy of this syllabus, read it and then bring it with you to your advising appointment.
Every applicant at HCC is assigned an academic advisor whose knowledge and experience will help you succeed. Your advisor can do much more than help you register for classes. He or she will help you map your academic career; explore career options; work through academic difficulties; or just talk about your classes.
The process of academic advising is a two-way interaction where the advisee and the advisor work together to achieve a common goal. Both the advisee and the advisor have responsibilities to fulfill (noted below) for the process to work effectively
