ARC Counseling Virtual Zoom Counter

ARC Counseling provides students with academic, career, personal, and crisis counseling necessary to reach their goals. Counselors are here to help you develop an educational plan of courses needed to get an associate degree, transfer to a four-year institution, or complete a certificate – even if you're unsure of your educational goal.

Counseling Services


Counselors are available to help make sure students start on the right track by developing an education plan of the courses needed to achieve their goal of getting an associate degree, transferring to a four-year institution, or completing a certificate. Our counseling team is here to help you succeed!


Are you undecided on your career goal? A counselor can help you explore what might be a good fit for you based on your interests, skills, values, and aptitudes. We also offer a one-unit career decision-making class called Life and Career Planning (HCD 330).


We understand that life while attending school has its challenges that can be stressful. ARC counselors provide confidential, short-term counseling with personal, family, or work concerns as they relate to educational goals.
