Advisement

 

Summer hours

Paradise Valley Community College is now on summer hours. Advisement hours of operations are Monday through Thursday 8 am to 6 pm. We are closed on Fridays.

Virtual Drop-Ins Are Available!

The purpose of the virtual drop-in advising is to assist you with quick general questions or discuss course recommendations for the upcoming semester. These sessions are intended to be quick check-ins (typically no more than 15 minutes).

If you need help with developing a full academic plan and/or have a series of questions and would prefer more in-depth time with an advisor, please scroll down to make an appointment with your advisor. We look forward to talking with you.
