Guidance

The Counseling and Career Center is located in Room B022.

 

If you have a general question or concern for your student's counselor, the most expedient way to contact them is through email.  You can also contact your student's counselor through voicemail. Counselors will try to get back to you within 24-48 hours (not including weekends or holidays).  Please keep in mind that if you are calling about course content or other class-related issue, we ask that you have communicated with the teacher first.
