You can make an appointment in person at the Counseling Department in Student Services (1st Floor) or by phone at (661) 763-7748.
Please be on time to your appointment or scheduled workshop. You may also need to bring copies of your unofficial college and/or university transcripts or placement scores with you to determine course clearance or course placement.
Late Arrival Policy
As a courtesy to other students and our faculty and staff, we expect that students will be on time to counseling and workshop appointments. However, we do understand that unexpected events may arise. We will accept late attendees up to 15 minutes after a scheduled appointment. Arriving late to an appointment will reduce your appointment duration by the amount of time you are late. Students arriving 15 or more minutes late will be required to reschedule their appointment. It is best practice to check-in 10-15 minutes prior to your appointment or scheduled workshop.
No Show Policy
Please contact the Counseling Department at (661) 763-7748 in advance if you will be unable to attend your appointment or scheduled workshop. Our support staff is more than willing to reschedule or cancel an appointment given prior notice. If you do not attend a scheduled appointment or workshop, you will be marked as a No Show.
