Academic, Career & Transfer Center

Our Academic, Career & Transfer Center helps you choose your major, plan your courses and create your future.

Coaching & Exploration

Please note: the cut-off time for walk-ins is 3:30 p.m. from Monday through Thursday and 3:00 p.m. on Friday.

Academic, Career & Transfer (ACT) Center coaches take the holistic view. We work with you to explore education and career interests, complete your studies successfully, and prepare for life after DCC. 

Make an appointment or drop in during office hours for first-come, first-served assistance.


We're available in-person at 301 Orcutt Student Services Center or by Zoom, phone or email. Walk-in and Zoom meeting hours are 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Friday. Email or call (845) 431-8600 for more info or to schedule an appointment.
