Counseling

The Counseling Center provides a comprehensive set of interrelated services, activities and referrals which focus on the holistic development of our students. Counseling is a growth process through which students are helped to define goals, make decisions and solve problems related to personal, social and academic concerns.

CONFIDENTIALITY STATEMENT:

Counseling often deals with personal and private issues and is predicated on the principle of confidentiality that is established by law and professional ethics. Disclosure of information to third parties without the consent of the student/client is prohibited. However, when necessary to protect the student and/or other person’s safety, disclosure of information about the student/client by faculty and staff to professionals within the college who have cause to know and are in professional positions to assist that student/client is acceptable.
