Welcome to Distance Counseling!

The Distance Counseling service provides current and prospective FLC students an opportunity to connect with a counselor for guidance with non-urgent matters pertaining to academic and/or career planning. The service can be accessed via e-mail or by telephone. Telephone appointments must be scheduled in advance by calling: 916-608-6510.

Please Note: Due to the winter holiday break, Distance Counseling will not be in service beginning Thursday, December 18th, 2014 through Tuesday, January 6th, 2015. Submitted inquiries will be responded to starting January 7th, 2015, in the order received.  Should you need to connect with a counselor during this time, drop-in counseling will be available on Tuesday, December 23rd, 2014 and Tuesday, January 6th, 2015, at the FLC main campus.
