Whether the educational goal is to taking one course, earn a certificate, an associate degree or transfer to a four-year institution, LACC counselors are available to assist.
The department's commitment is to provide quality educational career, occupational and personal counseling and create a climate and structure in which each student has a maximum opportunity for self-fulfillment. To this end, we conduct new student orientations, probation workshops, and participate in community and high school outreach. We also teach counseling courses in student development, including career and life planning and student success strategies.

3. Students who meet with a counselor will distinguish between general education requirements and major preparation coursework needed to achieve their education goals.
4. After a counseling appointment, students will articulate at least two on-campus student services resources that pertain to their needs.
