Counseling & Special Services

Counseling & Special Services provide support to all students who want to maximize their college experience. Services available include:

  • Career interest testing, career information, educational planning, and goal setting.
  • Personal counseling available to students (short-term, solution-focused); referrals to professionals for situations outside of our scope of practice
  • Assistance with academic concerns, creating academic support systems in test-taking, note-taking, and time management skills, and other issues or obstacles preventing students from being successful.
  • Support for students with documented disabilities including physical, psychological, and other health concerns. Such conferences are kept confidential. Students are encouraged to contact a counselor any time a problem arises that could affect progress in their studies.
