Students start their journey with an assigned Enrollment Advisor to help them navigate their first semester at Yavapai College. From the start, students will have the support they need to understand their next steps, from completing their financial aid file, identifying academic and career goals in order to select the best program, or helping research the local job market or university for transfer. After completion of their first semester, students are transitioned to their Retention Advisors to help them stay on track through the completion of their academic goals and beyond.
Advisors also assist students in adjusting to college life and in developing skills for success as a student's go-to resource to work through issues, providing information, resources, and referrals. Advisors provide support to students during their entire college experience.
Academic Advising is required for students who meet any of the following criteria:
- Student athletes
- International students
- Majors in nursing, paramedicine, aviation, radiologic technology
- Financial aid recipients who have need to file an appeal
- Students seeking to take more than 18 credits in one semester
Students in these categories who wish to register must first consult with an academic advisor. To request an appointment with an academic advisor, students can call 928.776.2106 or 928.634.6510. Additional information can be found at www.yc.edu/advisor or can be requested by email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Advising services are available at the Prescott, Verde Valley, Career and Technical Education Center, Chino Valley and Prescott Valley.
