Your Success Team
At Rockland Community College, you are provided with a Student Success Team that will help you with your academic journey, career exploration, transfer planning, support service referrals, and more! Your Team includes your Dean, Program Director, Faculty Advisor, Student Success Advisor, Connection Counselor, Financial Aid Advisor, Peer Mentors, and if you’re involved in any of these special programs, your Athletics, Honors, TRiO, and Veterans Advisors. During your first semester, you will take an ‘Introduction to the School’ course that will outline the various College offices and departments that can help you on your path.
Student Success Advisor
RCC has five schools that specialize in different areas of study: School of Arts & Humanities; School of Business & Professional Studies; School of Education & Social Sciences; School of Nursing, Health & Wellness; and School of Science, Technology, Engineering & Math. Because you belong to one of the five Academic Schools, you will be assigned a Student Success Advisor who is an expert in your program or major. To find out who your Advisor is and how to contact them, visit the who is my advisor page and click on your School and then find your Program. Contact Student Success at 845-574-4306 or [email protected] with any questions.

Review Your program of study Requirements
You can read about your program of study at sunyrockland.edu/programs. You can also go over the degree requirements of your program of study by visiting Self-Service in Banner. You can review course descriptions by visiting the course catalog. By reviewing all of this before your session, you will know what questions to ask during the appointment.
Be sure to have your laptop/tablet or pen and paper available during your advising session. You’re going to want to take plenty of notes and ask lots of questions. It’s also a good idea to have your calendar open so you can add important dates and deadlines.
Ask the Right Questions
In order to prepare the right questions, you need to know exactly what your Student Success Advisor can do for you. Your advisor can help you with academic planning, course selection, career path and transfer services, campus support information and preparation for graduation.
