Express Counseling is available in the counseling office from 9:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m. 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.  

Express Counseling is on a first-come, first-served, walk-in basis and open to new, current and returning students who have an El Camino College student ID number.


The Counseling Appointment Center number is (310) 660-3593 x3458.

Individual counseling appointments are available for the following students:
