Counseling Appointments

Counseling Appointments

There will be LIMITED counseling appointments available the week of December 17th - 20th.  The campus will be closed for Winter break December 24-January 1, and will reopen at 8:00am on Wednesday, January 2nd. Express Counseling will be available January 2nd - January 9th.

When you schedule an appointment, you are scheduling an appointment to come in and see a counselor at the Counseling Office the following week. Limit one appointment per student. Counseling appointments open for scheduling online beginning each Thursday, 1:00 p.m., for the following week.  However, if you are unable to make an appointment online, you can make an appointment in person in the counseling office or call the Appointment Center at (310) 660-3458 during office hours (subject to availability).

Financial Aid counseling appointments and Lock-In List appointments are no longer made through eSARS.  You must call the front desk or come to the Counseling office to schedule your appointments.
