Our staff is here to make your path to higher education a meaningful one.  Every Thursday from 5pm-7pm an academic advisor from Hudson Valley Community College will be here to answer any questions you might have about what it takes to start a path to higher education.  No question is too small.  No barrier too large!  

If you have ever thought about doing a certificate program, getting an Associates, getting your Bachelor's, or even working toward your Master's, the academic advisor will be here to help you. 

The advisor can answer questions about career opportunities, degree programs, and help you decide your path for the future.  Stop by the Welcome Center on the first floor of the CSCC any Thursday between 5pm and 7pm to get your questions answered, or call Linnea at (518) 694-4553 to make an appointment.
