Meeting with a Counselor
Drop-In counseling is available throughout the day during non-peak times, in the Counseling Department on a first come, first serve basis. This type of meeting provides the opportunity for students to meet briefly with a counselor without the need to schedule an appointment.
Can my issue be handled in Drop-in?
Drop-in counseling is limited to 10 minutes and is most suitable for questions that have a quick answer. Some examples include:
- Pre-requisite clearance
- Requesting excess units
- Removing a probation hold.
Certain waivers and petitions can also be completed on a drop-in basis, provided you have all the necessary documentation. (ie. unofficial transcripts, test scores from other colleges / institutions, etc. )
More in depth issues, including: Readmission Petition, career exploration and /or creating a Student Educational Plan (SEP) require a scheduled 30 minute appointment. 30 minute appointments can be scheduled at the front desk in Counseling Portable 1 or by calling (510) 464-3152 or 3153.
