Columbia College Counseling

Columbia College Counseling Department is dedicated to student success.  Our mission is to provide quality services in a supportive environment that assists students in identifying and achieving their educational, career and personal development.

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.
