Online Counseling


Welcome to Online Counseling,

Academic planning and Student Education Program Plan (SEPP) must be completed in person with a counselor.

Students must review the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) prior to submitting an Online Counseling question.

Students needing prerequisite clearances should visit the Prerequisites, Corequisites & Advisories clearances page for additional information.

Online counseling provides Fullerton College students or prospective students with a resource to ask general counseling questions that pertain to reaching their educational goals.  Some questions may require an appointment with a counselor on campus.  It should also be noted that due to changes in college requirements and policies, all replies are to be used as advisory and informational only and will not constitute an official determination by Fullerton College.

Remember: There is no assurance of confidentiality when using this on-line counseling service due to the nature of the Internet and email technology.

Responses will be handled in a timely manner based on counselor availability, Monday to Friday when college is in session.
