How It Works


HornetAttain! is here to connect learners with an Achievement Advisor who understands the unique needs of and resources available to adult learners and will guide you as you complete your degree. 

Achievement Advisors work with you to:

  • identify the classes you need to complete your degree,
  • the barriers you may be facing; and
  • the academic, financial and social resources available to help you overcome them.

They will personally guide you from start to finish as you complete your degree. 

To get started, please contact our HornetAttain! Learner Support Center to speak with a representative.

A HornetAttain! Host will discuss setting up an appointment with an Achievement Advisor, talking through your education goals and collecting preliminary information.  

HornetAttain! Learner Support Center Phone Hours:
Monday, Wednesday, Friday: 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. 
Tuesday, Thursday: 5 - 7 p.m.
