Academic Counseling

On a daily basis, City counselors assist the general student population in selecting programs of study that are appropriate for their personal and professional goals. Students and counselors work together to choose a program of study that is suitable to the student’s needs, based on factors such as academic status and history, professional goals and educational backgrounds.


Academic & TRANSFER Counseling includes:

  • Educational planning for an Associate's degree and/or Certificate program
  • Transfer planning for those students wanting to pursue a Bachelor's degree program at a 4-year university
  • Academic Probation or Disqualification counseling
  • Advocacy and support for all students

Student education planning

Need a Student Education Plan (SEP) or help with choosing classes?  First identify which of the following categories you belong to and then take the appropriate steps listed:

  • New Students: Attend a New Student Education Planning Workshop.
  • Undecided Students: You must attend a Career Exploration Workshop conducted through the Career Center.  Career Exploration services are available for students who are undecided on a major or do not have a specific career goal.  Visit the Events Calendar for more information on dates and times. 
What is a Student Education Plan or SEP?  Your EDUCATION PLAN or SEP, created in collaboration with a counselor, is your step-by-step guide to meeting Associate degree and/or transfer requirements.   NOTE: Creating an education plan will help ensure your registration priority, which allows you to enroll in the courses you need, when you need them. 

Need help with general counseling questions?  BRIEF 10-MINUTE walk-in sessions are available or you can visit our "Ask the e-Counselor" page to submit an email.  Please remember that personal academic records are NOT discussed or reviewed over email for confidentiality reasons.  There is a 24 - 48 hour wait for email replies.
