The School of Technology Academic Advisement Center offers comprehensive professional advisement services to full- and part-time students. We currently serve approximately 1,300 students, and each semester, students meet with a professional advisor to discuss their academic matters, including academic goals, schedules and courses, and transfer or employment plans. With assistance from advisors, students will be able to develop a career plan to complete their degree at Hudson Valley Community College and to set goals for transfer and employment.
Since it is the students' responsibility to make certain that graduation requirements are met, students are urged to take full advantage of the advisement services available to gain knowledge of degree requirements, course selections and transfer matters. Advisors also can help direct students to other services on campus.
