Counseling and Transfer

Home Student Resources Counseling and Transfer

SCC Counseling provides students with academic, career, personal, and crisis counseling necessary to successfully reach their goals. Counselors are available to help you develop an educational plan of courses needed to reach a goal of an Associate's degree, transfer to a four-year institution, or completion of a certificate; even if you’re unsure of your educational goal.

Counseling services are also offered at the Davis Center and West Sacramento Center.

Our counseling team is here to help you succeed!

Career

Career goals should be based on interests, personal values, aptitude, and life experiences. Your counselor can explore and select the best major and career goal for you.
