Supporting every aspect of your Waubonsee experience

Are you exploring academic majors and careers? Wondering what classes will transfer to the four-year school of your choice? Trying to keep your cool while making college fit into your busy life? Waubonsee has trained and caring advisors and counselors who can help you with your current challenges and your future plans. Come and talk with us—we're happy to help!

Our team of Academic and Career Advising professionals are here to help you from the start of your first semester and throughout your time at Waubonsee. Services range from creating and updating your academic plan, transfer planning, career exploration, and course selection. Call (630) 466-2361 to make an appointment!

Students have told us they want to see the same advisor throughout their time at Waubonsee, someone who knows their story and understands their individual goals and needs. Our new system is designed to help you get the ongoing support you need to be successful. Planning is important! Please note that student walk-in services are limited to brief advising sessions and may be subject to long wait times. Appointments are necessary for all advising beyond quick questions.

Counseling is available for students requesting personal/mental health support or in-depth career counseling. Call (630) 466-2361 to schedule an appointment and specify that you are requesting a counseling meeting.
