Who's My Counselor?
All students need a counselor and it's good to have options.
Benefits of working with a counselor include creating an educational plan, building a relationship, receiving academic support and career development, exploring a major/s, working on your personal development, and getting transfer help.
Choosing a Counselor
Students can choose to see any counselor. You may select someone based on your Major & Career Path (including transfer plans.) If you're undecided, pick a counselor marked "Exploratory" in the tables below.
You may also choose a counselor based on your participation in one of our awesome student support programs. These include DSPS, CalWorks, International, Veterans, EOPS/CARE, TRiO-SSS, TRiO-SSS STEM, MESA, Puente, STEMCORE, Athletics, Honors, and Umoja.
