Columbia College Counseling

Columbia College Counselors are dedicated to student success.  We are here to assist all students--continuing, new and returning--with educational, career and personal goals to enhance their educational experiences at Columbia and beyond.

How to access a Counselor:

Educational Counseling is designed to:

  • Help students make decisions about educational and career goals
  • Provide academic planning for certificates, associate degrees, and/or university transfer
  • Help students evaluate current academic readiness and plan appropriate coursework
  • Assist students to use campus services and resources
  • Review transcripts from other institutions for credit applied to certificates and degrees at Columbia College
  • Teach students important skills, strategies, and techniques to enhance academic success
  • Work with students to resolve personal concerns that may interfere with the ability to succeed

Note: It is highly recommended to meet with a Counselor at least once a semester to discuss progress toward your academic goals, develop or update your Educational Plan (Ed Plan), and learn about important services that enhance student success.
