Welcome to Saddleback College Counseling Services Division!
Professional counselors are dedicated to assisting current and prospective students in identifying, clarifying, and reaching their individual life goals. Counselors provide Academic, Transfer, Career, Personal, and Online counseling services. All counseling appointments are confidential.
In addition, as faculty, counselors teach Counseling courses that are designed to help students in achieving success.
How to Make a Counseling Appointment
- In order to make an appointment you must have a college application for the current or upcoming term.
- If required, you must have the Matriculation Process completed.
- Only continuing and matriculated students can use the online system.
- New students with student ID numbers must call or come in person to make an appointment.
Missed appointments: Should a student be a "no show" for two appointments in one term, he or she will not be eligible to schedule another counseling appointment for the remainder of the term.
New Appointment Process
How to make an appointment: We will now be making appointments everyday for the corresponding day of the next week. For example we will be making appointments on Monday for the following Monday and then on Tuesday we will be making appointments for the next Tuesday and so forth.
