Advising at Harper College is all about you.
Welcome to Harper College! The Center for New Students and Orientation provides new students with the information they need to get started and be successful. Whether you recently graduated from high school, have a bit of prior college credit already, or are an adult student with life experience, we’re here for you.
Planning to complete a degree?
New, degree-seeking students are required to complete New Student Orientation to develop an educational plan, discuss career goals and select courses for the coming semester. Along the way, we will introduce you to important services and resources.
Planning to complete a certificate or simply take one or more courses at Harper?
New certificate-seeking and student-at-large students are not required to complete Orientation. However, after you apply to the College, you are encouraged to contact the Center for New Students and Orientation with any advising questions.
