How to Prepare for Your Counseling Appointment

  • You will get a reminder about your counseling appointment the day before.
  • At your appointment time, you will receive a call from a number that may be blocked. It is your counselor calling; please 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 (your educational plan is called MAP, an acronym for "My Academic Plan"), help you with a financial aid plan, discuss academic probation, and help you with questions about certificates, two-year degrees, and transfers, most importantly, we can listen.
