Counseling, Advising, & Registration
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.
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.
To schedule an appointment call or visit the counseling office on our Raymond Campus
First-time students must be advised by a counselor or advisor in person at one of Hinds’ six (6) campus locations, or they may request Remote Advising, which allows students to speak with a counselor without having to visit the campus. Counselors and advisors are available for all students; however, returning students are not required to seek advisement each semester.

Check your financial aid status and the account balance at My.Hinds. All fees are due 10 days before classes begin (or at the time of registration if registering within 10 days of classes starting).

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.
