The Counseling Department is committed to providing quality, comprehensive academic, career, and personal counseling services in a supportive environment to assist students in achieving their educational and vocational goals, and empowering them to make informed choices and decisions.
As a new student, seeing a counselor is probably the most important thing you can do. Our counselors can:
- help you find the right level of classes.
- assist you in designing an educational plan to help you meet your educational goals.
- assist you in identifying your interests, skills and abilities to help you select a major and career.
- direct you to the many supportive services and resources awaiting you at SJCC.
The counseling faculty highly recommends that students meet with a counselor at least once a semester in order to more effectively and efficiently move toward their academic goals.
Students transferring to SJCC with units from other colleges are encouraged to make a counseling appointment for evaluation of prior course work.
To schedule an appointment, please call the Counseling Department.
