Classroom with Local Presence
The Ultimate Learning
To say that life is busy
is an understatement. The notion of "free time" is more myth than reality. In an already full life, adding
something new will require creative environmental design. We've done just that for you by providing
an easy to get to local classroom at Westchester Community College's Valhalla Campus and creating an even easier to
access virtual classroom through Maestro Conference.
We will alternate between live in-person class
meetings and live virtual/teleconference class meetings. One week we connect
face-to-face and the next we connect by phone.

Safe and Supportive
Once on campus, you'll enjoy a safe and supportive environment.
Tobacco-Free - As of 9/1/12, Westchester Community
College is proud to be a tobacco-free campus. The
policy was initiated primarily in response to the overwhelming scientific and medical evidence indicating the
serious health risks of second hand smoke.
Campus Security -- The objective of campus security is to
provide a safe environment for learning and sharing and to protect the lives and property of the students,
employees of, and visitors to the campus.
Westchester Community College recognizes the necessity of a community which
is open and intellectually stimulating, where diversity of ideas is valued and every person’s safety, dignity and
autonomy is respected whether they are students, faculty, or staff, and regardless of race, ethnicity, age,
religion, class, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, or disability. Here are a few of the security measures:
- Free educational programs on a variety of topics including personal safety
awareness, rape awareness, sexual assault training, and anti-theft programs.
- The campus is well lighted in parking areas and pathways frequently traveled
- There are Emergency Blue Light phones strategically located throughout the
campus and in the lobby of each building.
- By calling extension 6984, or 914-606-6984 from an outside phone, a person
may request an escort to his/her automobile.
