Counseling Services

Our Services Are Virtual for Fall

Important Note: All counseling services are now virtual until further notice. We often experience a higher volume of calls, emails, and chats near the start of each quarter, please expect longer wait time.


Our mission is to empower students in their educational journey by building upon their diverse strengths. We advocate on behalf of learners to overcome institutional barriers while providing academic, career, transfer, and personal counseling and instruction. We value the worth and dignity of each individual as they positively contribute to their communities and global society.

Our Commitment

Our goal is to help you clarify your academic and personal goals. Our counselors are committed to your success and deliver a range of services. These include sessions regarding course consideration for Summer and Fall quarters, AP test scores, prerequisite clearance, progress probation levels 1 and 2 to name a few.
