Advising

About

Counselors serve as the general advisors for all students entering into the college. Once you have enrolled, our counselors will provide you with the appropriate information to match college resources with your student needs.

Counselors can assist in making the student’s entry into Hinds a smooth one. They may assist the student in exploring a variety of courses leading to various majors. Counselors can also assist students in adapting to change and in learning good decision making skills as well as make appropriate referrals to other resources which may be of use to the student.

Educational Planning

Career Planning

The counseling office on the Raymond campus is now offering the Strong Interest Inventory (SII) to currently enrolled students. The SII is a self assessment instrument that is used to help you make satisfying decisions about your career and education. The SII measures interests, not skills or abilities, and the results will help guide you toward rewarding careers. Counselors are available after testing to go over your results and explore career paths.

FAQs

Am I required to meet with a counselor/advisor to schedule classes?
First-time students must see an advisor or counselor at one of the six (6) campus locations. Advisors and counselors are available for all students; however, returning students are not required to seek advisement.

Do I owe money or have a restriction from the admissions or business office that needs to be cleared?
Login to My.Hinds and check your account status. If there is a balance or restriction, go to the appropriate office or call 601-857-5261 or 1-800-HINDSCC.

What classes have I successfully completed toward my major?
First, print your unofficial transcript from My.Hinds. If you have attended another college check to see if the credits have been posted to your Hinds transcript. If not, contact the Office of Admissions and request that college transfer credits post to your record.

What classes should I register for next semester?
Review your program of study and mark courses completed and in progress. Students enrolled in developmental classes may wish to speak with an academic advisor.

You must receive college credit in the class for the course to be counted toward graduation. However, if while you were in high school you also took classes through a college, you may be able to use the college credit course toward graduation. You should send your high school transcript to Hinds CC to be evaluated.

Senior Transfer Guide

Students may take freshman and sophomore level transferable academic courses while at Hinds. Generally, one-half of the hours required for a bachelor’s degree may be transferred from a community college and applied to that degree at a four-year college or university. We maintain a close working relationship with all Mississippi senior colleges to insure that all academic courses which are intended to transfer will do so.

Hinds CC students who plan to transfer to a four-year college or university should be aware of the transfer requirements that may apply in their particular cases. These requirements vary with age, ACT score, high school preparation, high school GPA, and the individual transfer college.
