Appointments & Drop-in Counseling

Pre-Scheduled Counseling Appointments:

IMPORTANT UPDATE: Students can now schedule appointments for the following week rather than two weeks out as has been the practice for several years.  Appointments are available Monday thru Friday during regular business hours.  Fridays will no longer be drop-in counseling services only.  If you would like to make a pre-scheduled appointment to see a counselor, please stop by the Counseling Center on Fridays or call (916) 484-8572 starting at 7:30 a.m. Please note the following:

Same Day Drop-In Counseling Appointments:

In addition to pre-scheduled appointments, the Counseling Center offers same day drop-in appointments and drop-in waitlist services.  Same day drop-in appintments are set aside throughout the day.  Students will know exactly when to be at the Counseling Center to meet with a counselor. 

Drop-in Waitlist

The Counseling Center also offers students the opportunity to be added to the drop-in waitlist to see a counselor.  Students are seen from the drop-in waitlist in the order received.  Students requiring a one hour appointment (i.e. outside transcript evaluation, Veteran educational plan, and academic dismissal) are an exception and may experience a longer wait time due to counselor schedule availability.  Students added to the drop-in waitlist may choose to be notified by text message when to return to the Counseling Center.

Distance Counseling Appointments

The Counseling Center also offers a limited number of distance counseling appointments. Students can enjoy the convenience of web-based counseling from their home, office or anywhere that they have an internet connection and a webcam.
