Located in Frost 273, the Advising Center is a one-stop student service center for Holyoke Community College students. The Center provides all aspects of academic advising to new, current and returning students. All services provided through the Center are free.
Every matriculated student enrolled in credit courses at the college is assigned to a faculty of staff member for the purpose of academic advising. Together the student and advisor plan the student's program of study during the Priority Registration periods in the fall and spring. The final responsibility for selecting courses fulfilling graduation requirements rests solely with the student. Students can stop in the Welcome Center (FR 221) or Academic Affairs (FR 317) to find out their advisor's name and contact information. Students may also check their student account, available on the HCC website by clicking the My HCC link. Evening, weekend, and online students may obtain advising through the Advising Center (FR 271). There are two Priority Registration periods for current students: one in March (for the fall semester) and the other in October/November (for the spring semester) Students are encouraged to meet with their advisor and preregister for courses during Priority Registration. Exact dates are listed in the academic calendar.
