Remote Operations Update:
Due to COVID-19 and understanding Return to Work processes, counselors will provide limited virtual counseling appointments during the summer months. The priority during summer hours will be to address Academic Student Progress and crisis related needs.
Counselors will return to providing robust counseling services in our daily work on September 22, 2021. It is unknown at this time whether in-person counseling will be available beginning Fall Quarter.
Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to request a counseling appointment.
