How to Prepare for Your Counseling Appointment

  • You will get a reminder about your counseling appointment the day before.
  • At the time of your appointment you will see a call come to your phone, the number may be blocked, please know that it is your counselor calling you, and you should accept the call.
  • If you do not pick up the call at your scheduled time, we will move on to the next student. 
  • Once the counselor initially talks with you, they will determine the best way to support you for your counseling appointment.
  • Have your laptop or PC ready for the appointment, and your questions written down to ask your counselor.
  • If you don’t have computer access, we can still help you by phone! 
  • In your counseling appointment we are ready to help you with academic, career, and personal counseling. We can approve your educational plan (MAP), help you with a financial aid plan, discuss academic probation, and help you with questions you may have about certificates, two-years degrees, and transfers, most importantly, we can listen.
