Advising and Counseling

Office Hours: Monday-Thursday, 8 a.m.-6 p.m. and Friday 8 a.m.-5 p.m.

We are located on the first floor in Menard Hall on the Springfield campus.
Advisors are available to meet with students on a walk-in basis or you may call 217-786-2224 to schedule an advising appointment.

Academic advisors are here to explain your identified program of study; explain your placement test scores; explain the registration process; and suggest appropriate classes to meet your educational needs. Whether you are planning to transfer on to complete your degree, complete an associate’s degree or a certificate, or take a few classes we are here to help! Please refer to the advising hours for information on when advising is available and appointment options.

Student development professionals (counselors) can also provide assistance with career and personal development decisions and personal counseling services.  Counselors can be seen on an appointment or “walk in” basis.

Please review these Tips for your advising session to prepare for your appointment.

  • If you are a NEW STUDENT please complete the admissions worksheet and complete the placement test if applicable before you meet with an advisor. Dual credit, PACT and HEAT and First Semester students are considered new students; dual credit students also need to update their admission information in the Records Office prior to meeting with an advisor.
  • If you are a TRANSFER STUDENT, please also have your official transcripts sent to LLCC’s Records Office prior to meeting with an advisor; please also bring an unofficial copy with you for registration purposes.
  • If you are a RETURNING STUDENT please print off and review your program evaluation for your major (available in WebAdvisor), identify a few classes you wish to take, and review our hours before you meet with an advisor.  Please bring the evaluation with you when you meet with an Advisor.
