There are several ways to see a counselor:
Talk to a counselor on a first-come, first-served basis during designated drop-in hours. Drop-in counseling is intended for quick questions and general information--no transcripts, records, etc. Call the Counseling office to find out daily drop-in hours.
Make a 30-minute appointment with a counselor for assistance with transcript evaluation, career planning, educational plans, etc. Call or stop by the Counseling office to schedule an appointment. Make a Counseling Appointment
