Do I have to see a counselor before I can attend
If you are a new student you will meet with a
counselor as part of the orientation
process. If you are returning to Chabot
after an absence or if you are transferring from another college,
you can make a counseling appointment after you have filed an
application for admission if you wish. If you know which courses you
want to take, you can register without counselor assistance via
CLASS-Web, provided the courses are not restricted.
Do I have to be a student to see a counselor?
No, but if you are not a student, you will be restricted to front desk counseling
which is limited in time and availability. Front desk counseling services are designed
to answer quick, general questions and are restricted to a few minutes.
To be seen by a front desk counselor, come to the Counseling Office in Building 100
and check in at the appointment desk.
What types of counseling are available?
- Academic Counseling (30 min.)
- Transfer Plan Counseling (30 min.)
- Career Counseling* (30 min.)
- Academic/Progress Probation Counseling (30 min.)
- Personal Counseling* (60 min.)
- Student Education Plan Counseling (60 min.)
- Front Desk Counseling (1-3 min.)
- Veteran’s Evaluation Counseling (60 min)
* Limited availability
Please note that counseling services are available by appointment only (except
for Front Desk Counseling).
How do I make an appointment?
You can make an appointment by visiting the
Counseling appointment desk located on the first floor of Building 700, Room
752, upstairs from Admissions and Records.
Am I assigned a counselor?
No; you can see any counselor you wish, but it is a good idea to establish
a connection with one or two counselors of your choosing to provide continuity
in your academic plans and discussions. To find a counselor best suited to your
needs, get recommendations from your friends and/or meet with different counselors
until you find one with whom you feel comfortable.
