Advisement via Skype
Rockland Community College is pleased to offer Academic Advisement via SKYPE. This allows students to meet face to face with an Academic Advisor from any location.
Your academic advisor will review your program evaluation, make course recommendations, refer you to a wide variety of College resources and answer any questions you may have. At the end of your SKYPE advisement appointment, the advisor will clear you for registration.
