Let Us Help You Reach Your Potential

College Counselors are here to help you plan and navigate your academic journey so you can successfully complete your courses and earn your certificate, associates’s degree, and/or transfer to your chosen institution. Meeting with a counselor is crucial to your success, so be sure to connect with us early during your first full semester and at least every fall and spring thereafter.

We can help you develop a Student Education Plan (SEP), select courses, find additional support, discover opportunities, and guide you in making decisions. We are your team.
