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.

STEM Counseling Appointments:

STEM Counseling appointments are offered in person (in the STEM Center, 3906) or virtually via Zoom. 

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 (mlove@chabotcollege.edu), with your Name, W#, Major, phone number, availability, and if you prefer a virtual or in-person appointment.
