Meet your New Student Advisor

New students who plan to pursue a degree or certificate at Virginia Western are assigned a New Student Advisor to help them prepare for their first semester. Your New Student Advisor will

  • help you select the program of study that matches your goals
  • successfully complete all of the steps in the admissions and enrollment process
  • develop a schedule for your first semester at Virginia Western
  • prepare for a successful transition into college life

Once you’ve applied to the college, call or email your New Student Advisor to get started on your next steps. Make sure to provide your Virginia Western ID number and a time you are available to meet when you call or email.
