Guidance and counseling are integral parts of the overall educational program at the College. Students will receive assistance with personal, academic, and vocational concerns as well as career planning. The counselor works closely with the faculty to identify and address the specific needs of the students.

Personal, academic, financial, and career counseling is provided to participants in both individual and group settings. Assistance is also provided to participants who plan to transfer to four-institutions.

To supplement the counseling services, workshops and seminars that focus on a variety of academic and personal/social issues are also offered. Topics are determined by student need and staff assessment. Topics include, but are not limited, to the following:     

  • study skills
  • time management
  • test-taking skills
  • test anxiety
  • stress management
  • learning styles
  • college transfer assistance.
