Advising & Registration
In keeping with the recommendations of the CDC and the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, HCC is limiting campus foot traffic in order to maximize social distancing and keep our staff and students healthy. We are moving our student support services to phone, email, and other remote interactive options, including Zoom, Webex, and Google chat.
Whether you are a current or prospective student, please call 413.552.2722 or email our office and leave your name and contact information, and one of our staff will be in touch within 24 hours. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we make this transition.
Once you've been accepted to HCC, we will schedule an appointment for you to take your college placement test. Upon completion of your test, you can meet with an advisor to select and register for your classes. (If you've taken your placement test elsewhere or have completed college-level courses in math and/or English, you'll need to submit this information with your application to the college.) When you’ve completed your college placement test, please contact the advising center to make an appointment with an advisor and register for your classes.
Current HCC students are required to meet with their advisors during the pre-registration periods held each fall and spring to plan their program of study, and maintain communication with them during their attendance at the college.
Remember, a college education is an investment of time, effort, and money. We strongly urge students to consult with their advisors often to ensure they are on track for graduation. However, final responsibility for selecting courses that fulfill graduation requirements rests solely with the student.
