Academic and Personal Counseling

The International Education Counseling Center provides admitted students with academic and personal counseling to help them meet their academic goals.  Academic counselors are available year-round to assist students with schedule planning whether it is for an Associate degree at SMC or transfer to four-year university. Walk-in counseling is available year-round, however, students may meet with a counselor on an appointment basis as well during the third through twelfth week of each semester.  Students may also meet with counselors regarding personal issues and challenges that may be interfering with their progress in class.  Assistance with housing related issues is also provided through this office.

How to Meet with a Counselor

New students:  New student who have attended the Information Seminar and taken their assessment tests, are generally given an appointment to meet with a counselor to discuss their results and plan their classes.  After this initial appointment, students may return to meet with a counselor on a walk-in basis.
Continuing students:  Walk-in counseling, limited to 10-15 minutes, is available year round to serve the needs of continuing students.  For more in-depth counseling, students must schedule an appointment during the third through twelfth week of the fall and spring semesters.
