Students can schedule an appointment with a counselor for up to thirty minutes for academic, career, and personal counseling.  One hour appointments are available for students receiving veteran benefits and needing a comprehensive education plan.  Appointments can be scheduled by either calling (831) 646-4020 or visiting the Counseling Department in the Student Services Building on the 2nd floor.

Students can also schedule appointments by logging into their Web Registration account and selecting General Counseling Appointment in the Quick Links section.  It is highly recommended that veterans, new students, and concurrent enrollment students (grades 6-12) contact the department by phone or in person to schedule an appointment.

Counselors are available for same day appointments and drop-in meetings with students.  Although the Counseling Department provides this service, there is no guarantee a student will be seen due to possible high demand.  For more information, visit or call the Counseling Department.

Counselors are also available at the Marina Education Center.  Counselor availability is typically posted on the Marina Calendar of Events

Please note counselor availability varies.  Also, about a week and a half before the start of the fall and spring semesters and during the first week of those semesters, students can only see a counselor on a first-come, first-serve basis for a drop-in meeting.  Appointments are not available during these time periods.

During the summer, counseling hours are limited.
