Schedule an Appointment
Schedule a 30-minute appointment using our online QLess system or by contacting your advisor directly. Appointments can often be scheduled for the same day. However, keep in mind that during peak registration times appointments may be booked several weeks in advance.
Walk-in advising is a 15-minute advising session on a first come, first served basis. Walk-in advising is ideal for quick questions, and for guidance on the current or upcoming semester. Because the session is shorter, Advisors are not available to assist with long term planning, academic success planning, transfer institution/class questions, and other in-depth services that are normally offered during scheduled appointments.
Academic Advising Office
Academic Advisors provide students with support throughout their college career, from application to graduation. An Academic Advisor will be assigned to students based on the student's program of study. Students receive assistance with fulfilling educational goals on their pathway to degree completion. Academic Advisors assist with student planning and provide a guided pathway all the way to graduation.
Advising for Parents
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) prevents Henry Ford College from releasing your student's information to anyone without their written consent. You are welcome to join the student in the initial meeting with an advisor to address individual questions and concerns. For your student to develop independence and self-sufficiency, it is vital that they take the initiative to meet with their advisor and campus personnel individually throughout their journey at HFC.
