Drop-In Hours

Appointments are the primary way to meet with an advisor and strongly encouraged, however drop-in hours provide opportunities when visitors can stop by a QVCC campus without an appointment. Drop-in visitors may be able to meet with someone in-person, be connected to someone by phone or video, or be scheduled for an appointment.

Academic Advisors Are Critical to Your Success

All students pursuing a certificate or associate degree program have an assigned advisor. As a college student, we want to empower you to take ownership of your college experience.

Academic advisors are your partners in achieving your unique educational goals, including assistance with academic and career planning, selecting courses and building schedules, and reviewing options for employment or transfer.


You Have Questions, We Have Answers.

You are welcome to contact any of our Staff if you have questions or are experiencing difficulties. We are all here to provide assistance or connect you with someone who can.

Not sure who to contact? Send an email to advising@qvcc.edu.

  2. Select Banner Student & Faculty Self-Service
  3. Select Registration/Schedule, then “Class Registration”
  4. Select the current term and then choose “Submit”
  5. Scroll toward the bottom of the page to find a section labeled “CRNs” with a row of empty white boxes
  6. Either enter the 4-digit CRNs for each class from the course search in separate boxes or use the class search button to add classes to your cart
