Step 3: Hospitality Department New Student Advising
A face to face Departmental Advising appointment is a required process for all first-time and returning students of the Hospitality, Meeting & Event Planning, and Travel & Tourism programs. In doing so, the department strategically approves you for classes based on your progression and status in the program.
Advising appointments are available through the below google calendar links. Select an Instructor of your choice, then sign in using a google email (either your ACC email or personal gmail account). Then select the next available appointment, be sure to note the arrows for future weeks.
To avoid scheduling errors, please ensure that your calendar’s time zone is set properly to Central.
*Please note that students are able to enroll in our introductory classes without an advising appointment.  Those courses are Introduction to Hospitality, Introduction to Conventions & Meetings, Travel Industry Management,  and Special Topics in Hospitality (HAMG 1191)*
