How to See a Counselor

Counselors are currently meeting with continuing, returning, new fully matriculated, and transfer students on a Drop-in basis through January 2018. New incoming freshman students should review our New Student page for some helpful resources.

How to See a Counselor during DROP-IN Season

Counselors only see continuing, returning, new fully matriculated, & transfer students during our drop-in period. Drop-in times are available Mondays through Thursdays only from as early as 8:00 am and as late as 5:30 pm as counselors are available. Drop-in services are not available on Fridays.  Please refer to the calendar on the Counseling Home Page to learn about eligible appointments on Fridays.

Updates Regarding Our Advanced Education Process

If you are an Advanced Education student who wants to take Spring 2018 classes, please visit our website to view the Class Schedule. Registration dates for Advanced Education students start in mid-December. Advanced Education students will need to register in person at the Admissions & Records office for approved classes. For forms and information about process, please go to our Advanced Education page.

First Time College Students

If you are a first time college student (never attended any other institution of higher education) please be sure to complete our "Steps to Success." Group Counseling Sessions are available by appointment to students who have completed Steps 1-3. Call the counseling department at (916) 691-7316 to schedule your session. Note: Space and availability may be limited.

Probation/Dismissal Students

Students on Dismissal for the first time will need to see a Counselor to complete a Readmission petition to clear the Dismissal hold. Your second semester where you are in Dismissal standing, you will be required to sit out. If you have 2 or more Dismissals, you will be required to attend a Reinstatement Workshop to clear the Dismissal hold. Call the counseling department at (916) 691-7316 to determine which path you will need to take. Be sure to inform the Counseling Center front desk staff that you are on Dismissal. Please note that the Counseling office does not process Dismissals 10 business days before or after the start of a semester.

Reinstatement workshops are scheduled a month prior to registration and end a week before school starts (no exceptions). It is the students responsibility to always check their e-Services to be aware of any kind of hold. If you have been told that you will need to attend one of these workshops to complete your readmission process you can call the Counseling office at (916) 691-7316 to reserve your spot. Workshop dates for Fall will be released in April and July; Spring dates will be available in November prior to registration.

Students who are on Probation are encouraged to see a counselor but MUST sign up for a SUCCESS workshop in order to remove hold. Please be sure to inform the Counseling Center front desk staff that you are on Probation when asking to schedule a workshop. If students fall into Probation II status, students must make an appointment with their SUCCESS coach they met with during their SUCCESS workshop. Please check our probation and dismissal link.
