Section II. Student Support and Learning Services

Counseling - Room L104, (626) 585-7251 or www.pasadena.edu/studentservices/counseling

Our counselors can assist with educational and career guidance services. Counselors meet with students on an individual or small group basis for a range of purposes: developing a Student Education Plan (SEP), interpreting placement results, determining specific course selection for immediate and future registration, identifying students’ concerns and making appropriate referrals for services, and supporting the progress and successful achievement of the students’ goal through follow-up services. Although Counselors assist in long-range planning and in checking specific requirements, the responsibility for meeting graduation requirements, course prerequisites or requirements for transfer to other colleges or universities is one which must be assumed by each student. The Counseling website contains web-based tools to support your goal setting and planning process. You are encouraged to meet with a Counselor as you progress towards your academic or personal goals. You can see a counselor on a drop-in basis during hours of operation. You can also access a Counselor online. Online Counseling allows PCC students or prospective students with a resource to ask general questions that pertain to reaching their educational goal at Pasadena City College.
