Counseling & Personal Growth

*Please make note of the summer hours of operation on the left side menu bar*

We are in our very busy registration period and our priority is to help you pick classes for the summer and/or fall semester.  This means that there will be more drop-in counseling available and very few appointments. 

If you don't find any available appointments, please sign up for a virtual drop-in or stop by the office to meet with a counselor in person.

Be ready to wait for approximately 30 minute - 1 hour to speak with a counselor.
