Counseling

The Counseling department provides prospective and current students with comprehensive academic, career, transfer, and personal counseling necessary to successfully reach their educational, career, and personal goals.

Whether you are a first-time student, returning student, or have been attending college for some time, you may encounter periods when your educational performance or personal equilibrium is challenged. You will find a variety of professional counseling services at the Main Folsom campus, El Dorado Center, and Rancho Cordova Center. Day or evening appointments can be made by calling our offices.

Counseling services include:

  • Academic assistance with certificate/degree requirements, transfer requirements, and college selection preparation for an academic major course selection. See Preparing For Your Counseling Appointment.
  • Career assessment of interests, abilities, and labor market information employment trends. We also provide re-entry resources for single parents and displaced homemakers.
  • Crisis intervention, including conflict resolution, stress management, coping skills, and referrals to community resources.
  • Short-term personal counseling assistance with personal, family, or work concerns as they relate to educational goals.
  • Multicultural counseling in the context of cultural origins and values.
