Counseling Appointments

 

Remote Counseling Services are Available!


You can book a remote counseling appointment by calling our Counseling Center at (714) 992-7084.  Our Counseling Center hours remain the same during the COVID-19 hiatus.

Please let our staff know if you would like a remote counseling appointment via face-to-face video conferencing (Zoom) or by telephone.

We will also continue to offer General Information (GI) appointments where you can speak with a counselor to get quick questions answered. Remember, these GI appointments are on a first come, first served basis and a wait time may be involved.

The counseling 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 45 minute counseling appointments via Zoom or phone, but rather as a resource for general questions, and inquiries. We encourage you to use this tool as we have counselors who will respond to your questions or inquiries in a timely manner. Click on the e-Advising button below.

Preparing for a remote face-to-face video conferencing (Zoom) or telephone counseling appointment (in-person appointments unavailable until further notice)

  • Settle yourself in a quite area 10 minutes prior to your appointment to ready yourself to connect with a counselor (Counselor will call you).
  • Unresponsive students (15 minutes late) may be asked to reschedule.  Contact the counseling center as soon as possible if you are unavailable for your appointment.
  • Upon connecting with a counselor you may be asked to verify your identity
  • Have all documentation for your appointment (example: High School or other college transcripts, Advanced Placement scores)

Topics and ideas for students to discuss during a counseling appointment

  • Withdrawals: Should I withdraw from a course? What are the implications of a “W” on my transcript?
  • Good Standing: Are you in good standing or probation status?
  • Other College Transcripts: How do I know what courses at Fullerton College are comparable to what I took elsewhere? How do I get credit for courses completed at other colleges/universities?
  • Coursework: What courses do I need to complete to meet my goal?  How and where do I apply for a certificate or an AA/AS/AA-T (transfer)/AS-T (transfer) degree?
  • Major: How can I get help choosing a major and/or career?  How can I find out which schools have my major or the requirements for that major?
  • Transfer: How do I figure out where I can transfer?  What are the differences between the CSU/UC/Private colleges/universities/out-of-state universities?  What are the deadlines to apply?
