Sometimes you just have a quick question for a counselor about a class you’re interested in, or maybe you need to get a prerequisite cleared. Online Express Counseling is designed to do just that – and more!  Here are the services available through Express Counseling:

  • Prerequisite clearances
  • Getting started at El Camino College
  • General questions and referrals
  • Quick course advisement for one semester (not an official Ed Plan)
  • Consultation on Repeating Classes
  • Questions About Dropping or Adding Classes
  • Request to Enroll in Excess Units (Submit an Overload Petition Form)

Online (Virtual) Express Counseling Hours: Monday-Thursday 8 a.m.-5 p.m., and Fridays 9 a.m.-1 p.m.

Hours and availability of counselors are subject to change, and the virtual waiting lobby may lock 30 minutes prior to closing, or earlier if needed.
