Business Advisement Center

Our advisors provide advisement services to students in business-related degree and certificate programs. We are a team of professionals who are dedicated to working with you to guide you in achieving your academic goals.

NOTE: The information contained on this page is for general purposes only. Please consult with an academic advisor for specific recommendations appropriate to your individual situation.

Each semester, students meet with a professional advisor to discuss their academic life, including academic goals, schedules and courses, and transfer or employment plans. With assistance from advisors, you will be able to develop a career plan to complete your degree at Hudson Valley Community College and to set goals for transfer and employment.

Since it is your responsibility to make certain that graduation requirements are met, you 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 you to other services on campus.

  • Accounting A.A.S. and Certificate
  • Administrative Information Management and Technology A.A.S.
