Academic Counseling

Counselors are available in person and virtually

Academic Counselors provide comprehensive counseling services to assist students toward a successful college experience. Counselors help promote student development and success by coordinating quality services and programs that are designed to provide each student with individualized help in assessing personal interests and abilities, along with resolving personal issues and adjusting to college life. Counselors assist students in selecting the appropriate courses and programs of study in order to earn a degree or certificate, transfer to a four-year university, and/or complete a vocational program. Counselors work with students to complete Student Education Plans (SEPs) to ensure students remain on track to reach their academic and career goals.

Additional Information on the SEP (Student Educational Plan)

All students need to complete a Student Educational Plan (SEP). In order to maintain enrollment priorities, students must have a SEP on file. A SEP outlines a suggested course of study for the individual student based on major, transfer plan, and sequence of courses. Students are encouraged to update their SEP each semester or when a change is made to their major, transfer institution, or other pertinent objectives. A SEP should be developed during the student's first semester at CCC and maintained throughout a student's enrollment at CCC.

Major Sheets

Major Sheets are a useful reference to help keep you on track with your Student Educational Plan.

Majors sheets are available for all CCC certificates and degrees, including the General Education options.
