Academic Counseling

Counseling Appointments

Due to the high volume of students who would like to schedule a counseling appointment, we have implemented a priority system for appointment scheduling to best meet student needs. Counseling appointments are not available during peak registration periods and during the start of the semester/winter session.

During the winter 2020 session, only students in the priority groups below will be able to schedule an appointment.

Appointments are scheduled no more than one week in advance by visiting us in person during regular business hours (SSB 2nd Floor).

Limited appointments will be available between
Monday, January 13 - Friday, January 31:

PRIORITY GROUP 1: Financial Aid Appeals (Extension/Reinstatement), Academic & Progress Probation, Academic Dismissal

PRIORITY GROUP 2: Grad Petitions for winter 2020 ONLY (AA/AS/ADT requirements will be completed by end of winter session). 

PRIORITY GROUP 3: Students who have completed more than 21 units at a college/university outside LACCD and require a transcript evaluation

*Students who do not require the above services may see a counselor during express counselingStudents who are new to the college and have completed less than 12 units of college credit should attend a Group Counseling Session.

After you schedule your appointment:
  • Please arrive and check-in at Window #19 or 20 on the 2nd Floor of the Student Services Building (SSB) 5 minutes prior to your appointment. If you are more than 5 minutes late, your appointment will be cancelled and/or re-scheduled
  • You must bring unofficial transcripts if you have attended colleges/universities outside LACCD.
  • If you are a NO SHOW twice in a semester, you will not be able to book another appointment for the same semester without approval from the Department Chair.
