Counseling appointments can be scheduled up to one week in advance and are available year-round with limited availability during the winter and summer semesters. New appointments open every Monday through Friday at midnight for the following week.

LAPC Counselors are ready to support you in your pursuit of higher education. We assist in the development of student educational plans, discuss career and transfer options, confirm completion of associate or certificate programs, provide transcript evaluations, and discuss educational goals.

Counselors are also available to serve students in specific areas. If you are in a special program or wish to access a specialized service, please click the links below to connect:
