Academic Counseling

Online Academic Counseling

Welcome to Los Angeles City College’s Online Counseling Although the LACC campus is closed due to the Covid-19 emergency, counseling faculty are able to assist you through online chat, phone, email, or virtual appointments. 

Group Counseling Sessions are available and recommended for brand new students.

Express Counseling

Online Express Counseling would normally be a 10 minute conversation with a counselor for any of the following:

  • Prerequisite clearances
  • Course advisement
  • Information about associate degree/certificate programs
  • General education patterns
  • IGETC / CSU GE-Breadth inquiries and certification
  • Information about important enrollment deadlines and registration assistance

Express Counseling is not for comprehensive education plans, transcript evaluations, financial aid appeals, academic probation appeals, or graduation checks and graduation petitioning. If you need more than 10 minutes, you will be referred to schedule a counseling appointment.

Counseling Appointments 

Our online appointments are 30-60 minute sessions with a counselor to go over courses, majors and requirements, academic policies, transfer, career exploration, comprehensive educational planning and mapping of courses. Appointment slots open on a "rolling" basis where the system will automatically search for openings one week in advance or if cancellations occur during the week.
