Counseling Services


Counselors are available to assist you in clarifying and planning your academic goals. We can help you complete an educational plan for your certificate, associate degree and/or transfer curriculum. Human Career Development classes, taught by counselors, are designed to assist you in becoming a successful student. We can refer students with special learning needs to a variety of support services.


A career goal should be based on your own unique interests, personal values, aptitude, and life experiences. You and your counselor can explore and select the best major and career goal for you.

Personal Counseling

We recognize that life does not always run smoothly. Going to school and dealing with obstacles that sometimes get in the way, can be a stressful experience. For that reason, we provide confidential short-term counseling.

Mental Health Services can treat issues including but not limited to: Relationship issues, Worries/Anxiety, Depression, Transitions in Life, Conflict, Stress, Grief and Loss, Parenting, Addiction. Services are strict confidential and there is no fee charged for enrolled Cosumnes River College students.

We will respond within 24 to 48 hours.
