Students require a scheduled appointment to develop Educational Plans, transcript evaluations, and graduation petitions. Students are encouraged to work closely with the counselor who developed the educational plan and/or evaluated prior course work. New students who complete Kick Start and Guidance 210, 6 or KIN 1 will have a comprehensive educational plan and will be able to participate in priority registration.
Schedule changes occur in January, June, July, and August. Please check the Location and Service Hours for updated information. Hours vary at the Hollister and Morgan Hill sites.
Please note that all counselors observe the academic year calendar and therefore it is highly recommended that you plan ahead and schedule to meet with a counselor early during the semester. During registration months (November-January, May-August), counseling appointments book-up quickly. Avoid the frustration and schedule to meet with a counselor early during the academic year.
