Counseling Department at MSJC

Counseling at MSJC is about more than helping you map out your course schedules to stay on track for graduation.

You can receive academiccareertransferpersonal and crisis counseling at our office. Our counselors are available to guide you from the moment you apply to the day you receive your degree or certificate. 

All new students are required to participate in a New Student Counseling Session to develop their educational plan. Counseling appointments are currently scheduled up to two weeks in advance, however students can schedule an appointment online, by calling or visiting the counseling office and speaking to the front desk. We encourage students to meet with a counselor once per semester. This worksheet can help you prepare for your appointment. 

Student-athletes are asked to contact an athletic counselor to schedule a counseling session by calling (951) 487-3596 or schedule your appointment online.

For quick questions without the need to schedule an appointment, please use our Virtual Lobby.

If you’re on academic probation or facing dismissal, please make a one-hour appointment with a counselor to discuss your options for continuing your education at MSJC.
