Advising Day

If you have fewer than 30 college-level credits you must meet with your pathway advisor before you can register for next quarter’s classes. Each pathway has a  scheduled time and location. See the schedules for details.

Running Start Students with under 30 YVC credits (all first year students) should attend the Pathway session of their choice. Questions? Contact: runningstart@yvcc.edu

Advising Day occurs once during most quarters when advisors suspend their daytime classes so you have more time to meet with them. This provides you a chance to review your academic plan and make sure you are moving toward your goal.

No day time classes are held on Advising Day.  Evening classes that begin after 6:30pm are held at their normal times.

SIGN UP FOR ADVISING APPOINTMENT

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.

Attention Students: If you have fewer than  30 college-level credits you must meet with your pathway advisor before  you can register for next quarter’s classes.​ If you have over 30 college-level credits we encourage you to meet with your advisor, please contact them directly to schedule a time.

​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 about 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.​
