The first step to college is figuring out what your goals are and how to achieve them. That’s why counseling is every student’s lifeline to success! Merritt College’s excellent counselors provide academic, career, and personal counseling services to help students identify their educational, career and personal goals and develop plans every step of the way to reach them. To start off on the right foot, meeting with a counselor early in the educational process is a requirement for students to plan their pathway to graduation.
Counseling services are available by appointment, on a drop-in basis, and electronically, depending on each student’s specific situation. Along with general information about the college process, our dedicated counselors can help you with the enrollment process, explain the programs, help select your classes and follow you through your academic journey with any issues that may come up. They will also refer you to other important on-campus services that can help you reach your goals.
