There are several Advising resources available to all GHC students:

  1. Schedule an advising appointment in Navigate.
    • Students new to GHC - Schedule your First Semester Advising Appointment.
    • Students in 2nd semester at GHC - Schedule your Second Semester Advising Appointment.
    • Anyone else who needs Advising? Schedule an EBA Advising or Advising Follow-Up Appointment.
  2. DegreeWorks is a tool in the student portal that will help guide you in your specific pathway while at GHC.
    • This can be found in the Student Portal. You will then log in using your GHC student email login. On the top left, there is a box full of program icons, and then you can click on DegreeWorks.
  3. If you and your advisor built an academic plan together, then you can access this in Navigate. Once you log into Navigate, click on Planner at the top.
    • Make sure to access Navigate on a desktop or laptop in order to view your academic plan. Unfortunately, the planner function cannot be accessed on the app. 


Once advising is completed, students can create a course schedule for the upcoming semester.

  • Search course offerings to check if the courses are available in the upcoming semester.
  • Create a list of available course numbers, title, and CRN numbers.
    • Be sure to note the CRN number for each course (can be found on the far left column in course offerings); that is the number needed to register for classes.
  • Be careful when using the filters/options on course offerings. Limit the filters you use, so you are able to view all possible options.


Some students have Registration Holds that may cause delay or prevent the course registration process.

Holds can be viewed in your Charger Portal:

  • Under the Personal Info header, click on Registration
  • Click on Prepare for Registration


Students without holds on their account:

  • Access Charger Portal to register when registration opens.
  • After logging into your Charger Portal account, students can register through the following steps:
    • Under the Personal Info header, click on Registration
    • Click on Register for Classes
    • Select the correct term/semester from the dropdown menu
    • Under the Enter CRNs header, enter in each CRN number for the course(s) you would like to add.
    • Once courses are listed, click Add to Summary
    • Make sure courses display correctly in the summary, and then click Submit
    • Make sure the status column indicates Registered for each course


If you need to drop a course that you added, under the Summary window, click on the Registered status next to the course and click on Drop, and then click on Submit Changes at the bottom.

Students with holds must register with an academic advisor.
