ARC Counseling provides students with personal and academic counseling to help students achieve their academic and career goals. Counselors are available to help make sure students start off on the right track by developing an education plan of the courses needed to achieve their goal of an Associate's degree, transfer to a four-year institution, or completion of a certificate; even if you’re unsure of your educational goal. Our counseling team is here to help you succeed! If you are new to ARC or currently attending, we encourage you to see a counselor at least once a semester but you are welcome to see one as often as you like.  Counselors can assist with the following needs:

  • Help determining your academic, career or personal goals
  • Educational planning
  • Evaluation of courses taken at another college
  • Overcoming barriers in achieving your goals
  • Petitioning for graduation
  • When having difficulty in your courses or if you have been placed on academic probation/dismissal
