Colleague Self-Service

Self-Service is an Internet software system designed to provide students, faculty, administrators, and other members of an educational institution's learning community with "anytime, anywhere" access to information services. Self-Service will be replacing WebAdvisor in the long run.

Colleague Self-Service Financial Aid gives students the clarity they need. This intuitive, self-service solution features several tabs and web forms that guide students, step-by-step, through the process for applying for and accepting the financial aid they need in order to achieve their academic goals. Additionally, counselors see the same information students see — so they can provide relevant, timely support.

Use Self-Service to access and update your personal information, view your current semester schedule, register for upcoming semesters, add and drop classes, plan your course of study (your program evaluation shows courses completed and courses needed), or view your HC transcript and grades.
