  • As a courtesy to other students and staff we ask:
    Students should be on time for their appointment. There is a computer for appointment self check in. If your counselor does not come out to get you at your appointment time please notify front desk staff immediately.
  • Cancelling an appointment:
    Cancel online or come in-person to the counseling front desk to notify in advance if you cannot keep your appointment and need to cancel or reschedule. Appointments will be cancelled if students are more than 10 minutes late. *Students who have lost appointment privileges due to missed appointments may petition to the Dean of Counseling for reinstatement.
  • Privacy / FERPA
    Please note that Chabot ensures the privacy of all student records in accordance with statutes set forth in the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974. By law, college personnel, including counseling faculty and staff, are not permitted to give access to or to release student records/information to anyone other than a student. This statute applies regardless of the age of the student.
  • Transferring
    If you are transferring to Chabot from another college, you will need to meet with a counselor to verify prerequisites and possibly waive orientation and the assessment test, even if you have submitted official transcripts to Admissions & Records.
  • Student ID
    All students must have a Chabot student ID ( know their W#) in order to make a Counseling Appointment.  Once you have submitted the (free) Chabot College's admissions application you may go to Student Online Services to get a student ID (must bring proof of course registration and picture ID).
