Transfer Counseling

Due to limited availability of transfer counselor appointments, students are strongly encouraged to use the drop-in feature for brief transfer-related questions. Hours are updated daily (Monday-Friday).
 If you have not yet met with a counselor and/or do not have a student education plan, you must schedule an appointment with general counseling. 
Counseling Appointments will assist students with setting up their Student Educational Plans (SEPs), however, students will not register for classes during their counseling appointments. Please refer to registration information for registration resources. 

Drop-in Counseling

Drop-in Counseling is not appropriate for any transcript reviews, Student Education Plans or personal counseling, as drop-in Counselors do not have access to your transcript or other student records.
