Beginning August 31, all video or phone meetings with counselors may be arranged primarily by appointment only, Monday to Thursday from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm, and Friday from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm. However, we try to have at least one counselor available for drop-ins every day. In-person meetings are not available at this time.

First-time college students who haven’t attended an orientation must sign up for a New Student Orientation Session through our First Year Experience program.

Please note: Students seeking appointments with EOPS/CARE, DSPS, CalWORKs, or NextUP/Guardian Scholars should visit their program's specific web page to make appointments with their program advisors.

Video Appointment Information

These appointments are conducted entirely online, from wherever you are. They do not involve an office visit.

Requirements:

  • A desktop or laptop computer works best. Smart phones and tablets may work, but are limited in what they can do.
  • A working webcam.
  • A working microphone.
  • Google Chrome or Firefox web browser required, or a smartphone with the Zoom or ConexED app downloaded. Safari and Internet Explorer web browsers are not compatible.

Appointments

Beginning August 31, appointments will be available Monday to Thursday from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm, and Friday from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm. Video or phone appointments can be scheduled up to two weeks in advance. Appointments fill up quickly, so plan ahead. A handful of same-day appointments may be available each day for urgent matters.

Some situations cannot be done on a drop-in basis and require an appointment:

  • New students needing to make an educational plan
  • Veterans looking to make a VA planner or ask about benefits

Drop-In Sessions

Counselors are currently seeing students primarily by appointments; however, we try to have at least one counselor available for drop-ins every day.

The drop-in counselor will meet with students on a first-come, first-served basis by video or phone. Drop-in availability and wait times will depend on the counselors' schedules. Drop-ins are always subject to change.
