Academic Counseling & Advising

Counselors are available throughout the year to help you…

  • Explore options for educational programs and majors
  • Transfer to a four year
  • Select appropriate class
  • Career exploration
  • Mental health counseling
  • Disability services
  • Veteran resources
  • Connect with college and community resources
  • Transfer to another college or university

All new students must see a counselor before registering for classes the first time. Students must also see a counselor during their first semester to register for their second semester classes. We highly recommend seeing a counselor before you register each semester, to prepare to  transfer to another college or university, and before petitioning for graduation.

Please call 808.245.8212 to schedule an appointment.
