Liberal Arts Advisement Center

The Liberal Arts Advisement Center offers comprehensive professional advisement services to full- and part-time students.

The Liberal Arts Advisement Center serves more than 1,000 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.

The Liberal Arts Advisement Center offers:

  • Individualized Academic Advising and Distance Learning Advising
  • Degree Planning and Career Planning
  • Assistance using WIReD and Degree Works
  • Academic Improvement Planning and Academic Success Strategies

Important Notice: Hudson Valley Community College complies with the federal law, FERPA (the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act). Students calling this office by phone need to comply with this policy before seeking advisement and all visitors must show picture identification.
