Please note: Counselor availability is limited during peak registration.
Counseling appointments are currently booked on a “same day” basis only.
Counseling Appointments: Counseling appointments are scheduled on a “same day” basis only. The counseling department does not book appointments in advance. Therefore, if you need an appointment with a counselor, you will need to either call or come in on the precise day of which you are trying to make the appointment for. However, if you have quick questions for a counselor, you may elect to take advantage of our “Walk-inExpress Counseling.” Please note that Express Counseling is limited to 15 minutes. Therefore, if you require services that will exceed 15 minutes of individual counseling attention, you will need to make a “same day” appointment.
Express Counseling: Express Counseling is available for quick questions everyday during normal Counseling Office hours. Students are served on a first-come, first serve basis. Express Counseling is limited to 15 minutes for general information only. Students who need a comprehensive educational plan or have transcripts from other colleges or universities are required to schedule a 30 minute “same day” appointment.
Additionally note that due to the high volume of students requiring Express Counseling services, we may stop taking students 2-3 hours before closing time to ensure that all students who are placed on the Express Counseling list are seen.
*When reporting to your counseling appointment, please be sure to arrive promptly. If you are 10 or more minutes late, your appointment will be cancelled and you will be required to make another “same day” appointment. Please be aware that a future appointment will not be made.
Helpful hints for making “same day” appointments:
· Be prepared to either call or come in to the counseling department as early in the day as possible; preferably when the office opens at 8:00am. Please note that the later you attempt to make a “same day” appointment, it is more likely that the available appointments have already booked for the day.
· Additionally note that during peak registration times it may be beneficial to come in to the counseling department to make your “same day” appointment in the event that there is high traffic and students in line are served before phone calls.
· Be willing to be patient. During times of peak registration, there is a very high volume of students and only a certain number of “same day” appointments available. As a result, during such times, it may be difficult to immediately get an appointment.
· Make the most out of your “same day” appointment. Especially during peak registration times, you want to be sure to come to your appointment prepared to get all of your questions answered. Since appointments are limited, it is best if you get all of your “counseling-related” business accomplished during one appointment instead of trying to make multiple “same day” appointments.
