Academic Advising & Registration

Counselors can address your academic concerns and answer your questions about the College’s catalog, course requirements, course substitutions and study skills. They’re also here to help you choose both your major and your courses. 

Career Counseling

A Career Counselor can help you clarify your goals and make decisions about your career. Whether you need help choosing a major or planning a career change, our counselors can explain the College’s procedures, regulations and services. If you have a question and don't know where to turn, get informed––ask a counselor. 

Disability Services

The College ensures equal access to all of its educational opportunities for students with disabilities in compliance with Section 504 of Rehabilitation Act, Americans with Disabilities Act, 1990 and the ADA Amendments Act, 2008.

Personal Counseling

Sometimes family, work or other responsibilities can get in the way of your academic progress. At such times, it can help to talk to a counselor. The Career & Counseling Center has trained counselors available to help. If you’re looking for long-term counseling, we can refer you to outside counselors or therapists who can meet your needs.

Transfer Advising

Are you beginning your bachelor’s degree with us before transferring to a four-year institution? Make an appointment with a transfer advisor, who can help ensure a smooth transition by guiding you in selecting your transfer school and your courses. 

Workshops & Events

The Center offers several workshops and events each semester. 

Many of these counseling services are also available at our other College branches. For more information, please contact the Career and Counseling Center on the Marple Campus or the Student Services office at a campus near you.
