Please note: Career Counseling services are available by appointment only, with scheduling dependent upon current Career Counselor availability. While Career Services will attempt to accommodate all past, present, and future students who request services, services for current students will be prioritized during times of high demand. Based on staff discretion, students who have not received services may be prioritized over students who have received services, and/or service requests may be denied due to labor market circumstances, previous service attempt failures, or impolite or threatening treatment of staff.
