How to Reach Us
While you won't be able to visit us in person during the 2020 spring quarter, you can still speak with a counselor or academic adviser by phone, email or Zoom video, or by using our Online Adviser program.
Three Ways To Contact a Counselor or Adviser
- Use our Online Adviser program for quick questions
- Use our online appointment system to schedule a time to talk by phone, email or Zoom video
- You can also find contact information for individual counselors and advisers on our counseling directory webpage.
Tips for Making the Most of Your Meeting
- When making your appointment, be sure to request a counselor (not an academic adviser) if you need assistance with academic probation, career exploration, a financial aid extension or personal counseling, or if you are a veteran needing help with an educational plan.
- Before you come in, prepare a list of questions that you want to ask.
- Bring your official transcripts from other colleges, your placement test scores, your educational plan and any other records that are relevant to the issues you want to discuss. (See the accordion list below for examples of relevant documents.)
- Be on time! Please check in 10 minutes before your appointment is scheduled to begin.
