Counseling and Advising

Each student is assigned an EOP professional counselor who facilitates support activities and monitors the student's overall progress. The EOP staff works in conjunction with all campus offices to provide students with information regarding college resources and services.

This includes helping lower-division students plan their academic class schedules, select courses, and complete the registration process.  For upper division program students, the counselors play a different role, by requiring students to meet with faculty in their declared major for advising. 

The EOP professional counselors are available to assist with a wide range of questions and concerns, including:

  • Course selection for upcoming and future semesters
  • Study skills for various courses
  • Campus resources and activities
  • Majors and career options
  • Financial aid and money management
  • Graduate school planning
  • Adjustment to college life
  • Personal issues
  • Referrals

The professional counselors provide these services to program students in cooperation with other student support areas of the College such as the Office of Services for Disabled Students, First Year Experience, Counseling & Career Services & Math Lab and Writing Lab.
