Counseling

Staffed by professional counselors, the College’s Counseling Center offers you free educational, career and personal counseling services. Counselors also assist both current students and graduates who wish to continue their education at another institution. Information discussed in counseling is kept strictly confidential.

What’s Available?

All new transfer students, readmit students and students on academic probation must connect with a counselor to register for courses. We are still registering for Fall 2022 (10-week and 7-week courses). Spring 2023 (January start) will not begin until late October 2022.

Once we receive your request, you will be contacted by our Intake Receptionist or a Counselor about registration and next steps.
