Please note that children under 12 are NOT PERMITTED at the SEP Workshop or the New Student Orientation.  Thank you in advance for your consideration.

STUDENTS NEEDING AN SEP (PROBATION) WORKSHOP: When booking your appointment online, please make sure you are signing up for the SEP workshop.  The SEP Workshops can be found in the online scheduling system under Counselor Group Selection --> Student Enhancement/Probation Workshops.

New Student Orientations and regular 30 minute appointments DO NOT qualify as SEP Workshops.


ATTENTION STUDENTS: you are scheduling an appointment to come in and see a counselor at the Counseling office the following week.  NOTE: On occasion, there are same-week appointments available, so be sure to note the date and time of your appointment VERY carefully.  

To help you remember your counseling appointment, you can:

** Print the confirmation page with the name of the counselor and the room number after you book your appointment.

** Make a note of the appointment in your planner or on your mobile device.

Appointments can be scheduled online beginning at 6:00 p.m. on Thursdays until all appointments are booked for the following week.  You do not need to be at a computer right at 6:00 p.m.; you may go online any time after 6:00 p.m.  Once all appointments are booked and closed, the appointments will then reopen again on Thursday at 6:00 p.m. for the following week.

Appointments book & close faster as we get closer to registration for the new semester - go online on Thursdays for the best availability of counseling appointments.
