We are currently experiencing a high demand for counseling appointments and availability is limited. Check back regularly as appointments open up 1 week in advance (check after midnight M-F) and openings may also occur if there are cancellations.
- Need to know what courses to take? Make an appointment for Educational Planning so you have a full 60 min. appointment! If you completed 24 units and don't have an education plan on file, we strongly recommend that you make an Online Counseling Appointment. The counselor will assist you in developing a semester by semester breakdown of your courses leading towards your educational/career goal.
** If you are currently not enrolled in any courses, please go through the Guest Registration option in order to log in to Cranium Cafe (server where counseling appointments are made). Only use Chrome or Firefox web browsers**
- If you are a new or returning college student with less than 24 college units completed, go to the First Year Experience (FYE) to make an appointment with an FYE Counselor.
Our goal is to help students clarify their goals, realistically evaluate their own strengths and challenges, and learn to develop their planning skills to achieve their goals. The Counselors at Los Angeles Pierce College (LAPC) are trained in educational planning, career planning and personal counseling. We recognize that this is a process and doesn't happen in one visit.
Counseling Student Learning Outcomes (SLO)
The Counseling Student Learning Outcomes (SLO) are based on the individual counseling appointments in the General Counseling Office. Students come with differing levels of goal definition, a wide range of academic preparation, specificity in their requests, and different levels of understanding about the system.
Here is what we hope to accomplish with students, depending on their circumstances:
- Students will be able to evaluate academic options and make informed decisions on appropriate classes to take each semester.
- Students on Probation will learn success strategies after meeting with a counselor that will assist them in making satisfactory academic progress.
