Advising Tips

Academic Advising

No matter which program you’re in, you’ll be assigned an academic advisor during your first semester at ECC. Throughout your time here, your advisor will work with you one-on-one to assist you in planning your courses and your academic and professional career. Call 847-214-7390 or stop by B120, Student Success Center, to schedule an appointment.

Transfer Advising

If you’re planning to transfer to a four-year institution, there’s a lot to think about. Which colleges offer the program you’re interested in? Will your new school accept your ECC credits? What if you don’t know what you want to study?

Your advisor will work with you to answer those questions and create an individual transfer plan for you. Your advisor can also tell you about ECC’s agreements with other colleges to help ensure a smooth transition. We recommend you meet with your advisor each semester — they’re here to help.
