Academic Advising

The Academic Advising team at HFC assists students in achieving academic success. We aim to provide accurate information and support to ensure that academic goals are met.


  • Ensuring students have an advisor who will serve as a resource from which they can draw advice, information, and accurate referrals on policies, procedures, regulations, and requirements.
  • Providing students with accurate and comprehensive academic advice designed to help them meet their educational goals.
  • Teaching students the appropriate steps to self-advocacy.
  • Encouraging students to establish positive relationships with faculty, staff, and other employees at HFC.
  • Promoting student involvement in on-campus, co-curricular experiences that will help develop interpersonal and leadership abilities.
  • Promoting student involvement in off-campus, experiential-learning opportunities to help explore and clarify career options.
  • Actively encouraging student retention, academic achievement and program completion.
