Counseling Appointments

When you schedule an appointment online, you are scheduling an appointment to come in and see a counselor at the Counseling office the following week, or attend a workshop in a designated location. Limit one appointment per student.

General academic appointments are scheduled for 30 minutes. SSP (Probation) workshops are scheduled for three (3) hours. Do not book SSP Workshop appointments unless you are on Probationary Status Level 1 or 2, or Academic Dismissal. You will be turned away and will need to reschedule your appointment for a later date.

Counseling appointments are available for scheduling online each Thursday, beginning at 5:00 p.m. and thereafter*, until all appointment slots have been filled.
