STEM-E Pathway Counseling

STEM-E (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math & the Environment) Pathway counselors are available to help you achieve your goals! STEM counseling is for students who plan to major in a STEM field such as Biology, Computer Science, Engineering, Environmental/Earth Science, Geology, Chemistry, Physics, Math, and/or are interested in continuing on to a professional program such as Medical, Dental, Pharmacy or Veterinary School. 

All STEM Pathway students should start by seeing a STEM Counselor.

Schedule an appointment with a STEM Counselor to: 

  • Discuss your academic, transfer, and career goals 
  • Review transfer and AS/AS-T requirements 
  • Develop a Comprehensive Student Education Plan (SEP), which will map out which courses you need to take each semester until graduation and/or transfer (we recommend you do this within your first year at Chabot)
  • Review transcripts from prior colleges/universities, or Advanced Placement (AP) scores
  • Complete Counseling forms (such as: excess units, prerequisite overrides, course repeat petitions etc.) 
  • Get connected with STEM Resources (tutoring, research/internship and scholarship information) and STEM Support Programs, such as the MESA Program  

To schedule your STEM Counseling appointment, please email Mary Love, STEM Center Senior Instructional Assistant (, with your Name, W#, Major, phone number, availability, and if you prefer a virtual or in-person appointment.
