Is your program major current on your student record?

An important part of developing a graduation plan is utilizing the Interactive Degree Audit Report (DARS).  For DARS to be useful to you, it is important to make sure your major is up-to-date in your academic record.  If it is not, submit a Change of Major eForm.


Who is your Faculty Advisor?

One of the reasons it is important to make sure your major is up-to-date is because your faculty advisor is assigned based on your major. 

You can find out who your faculty advisor is by:

  • Going to eServices
  • Click on Courses & Registration
  • Click View/Modify Schedule
  • At the top left of the page, your Program Major and Faculty Advisor will be listed

See your Faculty Advisor if you are currently enrolled in at least one technical (program) course.

See your Enrollment Advisor if you are currently:

  • Not enrolled in any technical program courses
  • Enrolled in general education courses only
  • Enrolled in Pre-LPN, Pre-Dental, Pre-Medical Assistant coursework
  • Enrolled in any prerequisites for your technical programs


Advising Session Schedule

Check with your program faculty advisor for your advising session date and time.

Current students are encouraged to meet with their faculty advisor for academic advising during Advising Month to prepare for the upcoming semester and plan their next semester's schedule.  Maintaining regular contact with your program faculty advisor is important to your success!

Faculty advisors provide assistance in:

  • planning a program of study consistent with the students' educational and employment objectives
  • selecting courses
  • clarifying college policies and procedures
  • interpreting graduation requirements
  • overcoming barriers to their educational success

Students are encouraged to meet with their program faculty advisor several times each semester.

All students with a declared major are encouraged to meet with their faculty advisor during Advising Month. Students who have not declared a major receive advising services from enrollment advisors.

Bring the Following Items to Your Advising Session:

    The advising transcript is a computer-generated transcript for students, which covers the student's HTC course history including transfers, test-outs, and assessment scores.

How to Obtain an Advising Transcript

  • DARS (Degree Audit Reporting System)
    DARS is a computer generated degree progress report for students. The audit lists the college award requirements and helps the student plan and monitor progress toward graduation.

    Academic Planning Guides
    are used to help students choose and register for courses in a specific sequence. If you have received a personalized academic planning guide, it may be helpful to bring it to your advising session as well.
    Application for Award
    forms should be submitted one semester prior to graduating. Students will be considered for priority registration if the form is submitted by the designated deadline and they have 18 credits or less left to complete within their major.
