Counseling/Career Guidance

The School of Counseling and Personal Development offers a comprehensive program designed to ensure student success.

Academic advisement and individual counseling appointments are available to all students as well as a full range of courses in personal growth and development. Counselors are prepared to answer inquiries or talk with students about their academic performance, choice of career, personal goals, and transfer opportunities.

The counseling faculty will assist each student in developing a Student Educational Plan (SEP) outlining all coursework necessary to achieving their goals.

To begin the counseling process, please complete the Student Services Needs Assessment “Intake Form,” print it and bring it to the Counseling Center. A counselor will review it and within 7 business days email you a prescribe “Next Steps” you should take to plan your college education experience.

Personal Counseling

We understand that attending college can create added stress in your life. Students are asked to juggle classes, homework, part-time employment, and various personal obligations. The School Psychologist, located in the Counseling Center, is available to assist you with personal problems and stressful situations that may impede your academic success.

Stop by the Counseling Center and ask for information about the Personal Wellness Program. Should you ever feel overly stressed or feel the need to discuss a serious personal issue, feel free to come by the Counseling Center to schedule an individual appointment with confidential MFT Interns.

Stop by the Counseling Center located on the second floor of the Student Services Center, or call (619) 421-6700 x 5240
