Notice to Students
During Ohlone’s peak registration period (mid-November to the end of December), counseling appointments fill up very quickly. During this period, counselors will be available to meet with students on Drop-in sessions. Drop-in counseling is generally limited to 10 minutes, but during this time counselors may extend the time in order to address all of your immediate concerns related to preparing for the Spring 2014 semester (selecting your courses, submitting petitions, registration questions, etc.). Appointments for complete Student Education Plans will resume in January.
Drop-in counseling is on a first-come first-serve basis and wait times typically are from 30-60 minutes.

We can help you reach your goals!
The Counseling Department is here to serve all students of Ohlone College. Counselors meet with students individually, in small groups, workshops, and in classes to help students in achieving their academic goals and personal growth. Counselors are educated to directly assist students with a wide range of issues and are knowledgeable about other helpful resources at Ohlone and in the community. Counselors can provide career information and assessment, orientation, and other general counseling services. Counselors have current college transfer information and help students with transfer plans.
