HOW TO MAKE A COUNSELING APPOINTMENT
10 MINUTE SAME DAY APPOINTMENTS:
Students who have questions that can be answered quickly can obtain a 10 minute appointment with a counselor. (Students who require a review of their transcripts will need to make a regular appointment. See below regarding “other counseling appointments.”) These limited number of 10 minute same-day appointments are booked beginning at 8 am Monday through Friday by Counseling Department clerical staff. Please call 818-947-2600, extension 4200 or visit the Counseling Department in the Student Services Annex to make these same-day appointments. Students who call or come in early in the morning have the best chance of getting an appointment for later the same day.
