Advising Services Mission
Advising Services fosters a culture of growth and development for Harper College students. Advisors guide students through the college experience with intentional educational planning, empowering informed decision-making on academic and career goals, and connecting students to campus resources that holistically address students’ diverse needs. Advisors and students partner to ensure a greater chance of success, persistence, and completion of an academic credential.
Advising Services include academic goal-setting support, educational and transfer planning, and information on Harper’s career and transfer programs. New credential-seeking students are assigned an academic advisor who will assist them from start to finish. This includes developing semester-by-semester plans to meet each student’s goals, addressing academic concerns, and degree progress checks.
Advising Services is located in Building A, Room 364 and can be reached at 847.925.6220.
Specialized advising services are also offered for English as a Second Language (ESL) students. The English as a Second Language office can be reached at 847.925.6227.
