Counseling Appointments - Counseling Department
Important Notice: Due to very high demand for services, counseling appointments are currently booking very quickly.
If you would like an appointment, it is advised that you come to the Counseling window at the Fremont or Newark campus on Monday morning to schedule an appointment for the following week.
If you need assistance selecting courses for Summer/Fall 2013, you may visit drop-in counseling for immediate assistance. Longer issues, such as Student Education Plans, will require an appointment.
As counselors, we are concerned with the academic success of our students and wish to provide the highest quality services as possible.
Because transfer requirements and regulations can change from semester to semester, we feel students are best served by regular and consistent meetings with a counselor. We find that many students not only change their academic goals often but also experience some type of educational difficulties or stress, which may affect academic performance.
For these reasons, we recommend that you schedule at least two appointments per semester with a counselor so that we may review your educational and career goals as well as get to know you on a more individual basis.
