Meet Our Team

Joanne d’Entremont: Coordinator – Office of Academic Advising & Part-Time Study

Joanne provides academic advising for students in all programs. She can provide guidance and options for students who are looking to change their learning pathways, add or lighten their course loads, considering changing programs, and how to best proceed should things go awry in programs.

Joanne also manages courses offered through Continuing Education. These are credit courses offered outside the program areas but transferable within Holland College programs. She can discuss how these courses may be options for students in Holland College programs or for those wanting to continue as part-time students.

Joanne coordinates students in Open Academic Study (OAS). Together she and the OAS student create a schedule of courses that best meets the students’ goals and offers the opportunity for program exploration.
