10 MINUTE SAME DAY APPOINTMENTS:

Students who have questions that can be answered quickly, without review of transcripts, can obtain a 10-minute, same-day appointment with a counselor.  These 10-minute, same-day appointments are booked beginning at 8 am Monday through Friday by Counseling Department clerical staff. Please call 818-947-2474 or visit the Counseling Department in the Student Services Annex to make a same-day appointment. Students who call or come in early in the morning have the best chance of getting an appointment for later the same day.

30-MINUTE COUNSELING APPOINTMENTS:

Students who require a review of their transcripts from within the Los Angeles Community College District (LACCD) only, will need to make a 30-minute counseling appointment.  These appointments are for currently enrolled students to develop and/or update student educational plans and discuss  educational obstacles and challenges, or other topics that may require longer than 10 minutes.  These 30-minute appointments are scheduled starting each Tuesday morning at 8:00 AM for the following week either online or in person in the Counseling Department (Student Services Annex) or by phone at (818) 947-2474.
