Early Bird Advising
Early Bird Advising (EBA) takes place throughout the fall and spring terms at each GHC site. Long-range planning helps ensure that students complete their programs or transfer goals in a timely manner. In addition to long-range planning, students will have an opportunity to look at the upcoming term and make appropriate choices based on their needs. The importance of Early Bird Advisement is that advisors and students focus on how to meet the requirements of an entire program or transfer to a four-year institution in the most efficient manner across several semesters. Questions, such as how a change of major would affect existing credits, are covered during Early Bird Advising for those considering a course of study change. This is also a good time to discuss career options.
IMPORTANT: If you have holds, we strongly encourage you to see an advisor BEFORE registration begins--if you wait and come during registration, your waiting time may be longer than anticipated.
EBA is on NOW! Make an appointment with a faculty advisor in your area of study.
For Faculty Advisors at each campus, look under Academic Divisions and your major (General Studies should meet with a faculty advisor under the Social Sciences): http://www.highlands.edu/site/academic-divisions
Use the new GHC eScheduler to make your appointment: wass.highlands.edu
Remind your faculty advisor to use ScoreCard (see instructions on ScoreCard page) and put (and save!) in the Notes that you had an EBA appointment.
“EARLY” Registration opens Oct. 21st, you will be able to register (opposed to waiting until Nov. 4th).
