Welcome to Fullerton College Counseling Department
The Fullerton College Counseling Department provides student-centered counseling services to support the achievement and growth of our diverse student population with the intent of helping students develop their highest potential, fulfill their goals and promote life-long success.
In support of the Fullerton College Counseling Center’s mission, we foster and commit to the enrichment of students, faculty, staff and the local community through the following:
- Counseling: Provide academic, career and personal counseling services through individual and group counseling sessions.
- Instruction: Offer courses tailored to the needs of students to maximize their academic potential and experience.
- Networking/Coordination: Outreach to the campus and larger community offers a full-spectrum experience that promotes growth and the learning process.

With our mission and core functions at the forefront, the Fullerton College Counseling Department and Student Development Division provides services for students through the Counseling Center, the Counseling Resource Center, the Career and Life Planning Center, the Cadena/Transfer Center, the Assessment Center, Disability Support Services and the Veterans Resource Center. In addition, the division provides student development courses in College Study Skills, Career Development and Educational Planning.
The center also provides e-Advising. This is a web based email service through the Fullerton College website for students to ask general counseling questions. This service is not intended to take the place of our face-to face appointments, but rather as a resource for general questions.
