VHCC counselors and academic advisors want to empower students so they can understand and take control of their education and career goals. We will encourage our students to become involved with campus life to enhance their collegiate experience.

To achieve this goal, counselors and advisors will:

  • Provide a mentoring role in the advisee’s transition from college entry to the declaration of a chosen academic program to graduation
  • Guide the student in choosing classes that will meet the academic requirements of his/her
  • Provide accurate and timely information tailored to the needs of the individual student’s
    academic and career goals
  • Teach the student the most effective way of reading the college catalog
  • Provide information about all academic deadlines
  • Advise students on the importance of placement testing and encourage them to prepare for these tests prior to taking them
