WHAT IS ADVISING?

Students who have a clear plan are more likely to achieve their academic goals. Advising helps you develop an academic plan and focus your time at YVC. A good plan can save you time and money. YVC is committed to student success. We are here to assist you in planning your education so that you are taking the courses you need to get the degree you want.

​WHAT IS PATHWAY ADVISING?

Pathway advising groups related degrees and certificates. When you choose a pathway, you choose a group of advisors who are experts on those degrees and certificates. Learn more: www.yvcc.edu/pathways

​AM I STUCK ON A PATHWAY FOREVER?

No. We understand goals can shift and bend as life happens. So if your goals change, your advisor will help you to change pathways.

​WHAT DOES AN ADVISOR DO?

Advisors are full time instructors and counselors who will help you understand degree and certificate requirements, develop a balanced schedule, and help prepare you to register for classes next quarter.

​DO I HAVE TO MEET WITH AN ADVISOR?

Mandatory Advising for New Students

All new students are required to meet with a pathway advisor until they have successfully completed 30 college-level credits. After 30 college-level credits and the mandatory requirement has been meet it is highly recommended that students continue to seek quarterly advising.

Transfer and Returning Students

Transfer and returning students will be advised their first quarter and until they have met the 30 credit criteria for new students. Once the requirement has been met they can be released from mandatory advising by their academic advisor.​
