Counseling Department Services
Counselors at College of the Sequoias provide:
- Educational and career guidance
- Interpretation of Assessment scores
- Student Education Plans
- Referrals for other services on and off campus
- Support the progress and successful achievement of the student's goal through follow-up service
- Personal and social concerns are also addressed as they relate to college success.
Because accurate information is essential, our counselors are dedicated to ensuring that students receive current and correct information. This information is usually documented in a Student Educational Plan which reflects the current stated goal of a student. Students wishing to change their goal should see a counselor to revise their Student Educational Plan.
Counselors are available during the day (M-F, 8am- 4pm) either by appointment or on a walk in basis.
It is advised that students make appointments well in advance of registration because of the high demand for counseling.
