The Academic Counseling department's commitment is to provide quality educational career, occupational and personal counseling and create a climate and structure in which each student has a maximum opportunity for self-fulfillment. To this end, we conduct new student orientations, probation workshops, and participate in community and high school outreach.  We also teach counseling courses in student development, including career and life planning and student success strategies.
