WVNCC Academic Advising Mission Statement

WVNCC believes no two students are exactly the same. We take a holistic approach to advising students by considering each student's circumstances, goals, attributes, abilities and interests. Advisors work with students to foster self-awareness, articulate goals, and develop feasible paths to achievement.


STUDENTS: You can quickly locate your advisor by clicking on the "Advisor Information" tab across the top of your student portal.

It's a GREAT idea to check-in with your advisor at the beginning of every semester. Introduce yourself if you haven't met, or just stop in to say "hey" if you have. You can stop by your advisor's office to look for his/her office hours and note a time when you'll stop by to check-in during the first week or two of school.
