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.
Counseling appointments are available for scheduling online each Thursday, beginning at 5:00 p.m. and thereafter*, until all appointment slots have been filled.
If you are unable to make an appointment online, you may make an appointment in person at the counseling office. Same-day and/or same-week appointments may be made in the counseling office (subject to availability).
Express Counseling is generally available in the counseling office from 8:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. on Fridays* for those who have quick questions, or who need prerequisites cleared to enroll in classes. For prerequisite clearances, students coming from other colleges need to bring copies of their transcripts for the counselor to review.
