The following counseling services are available: 

Counseling Quick Questions (Ask a Counselor)

You can email a counselor at for quick questions regarding general topics such as: summer/fall registration dates and form processing assistance. These are for quick question and answer sessions and are NOT designed for intensive information.  Your student record will not be accessed. This can take up to 2-4 business days for a response.


Drop-in Counseling

Counselors are also available for brief advisement sessions, commonly referred to as Drop-in counseling. Drop-ins are 10-15 minute brief counseling sessions that are available in-person or remotely via phone or Zoom.  Drop-in counseling sessions are intended to address quick questions specific to a student’s academic record. During these sessions, counselors will be able to access your personal information and provide details specific to your academic record. Drop-in counseling is available same-day on a first-come, first-served basis.  If accessing remotely, a counselor will typically contact you within a 2-3 hour time frame.
