​Welcome to the SMC Transfer/Counseling Center!

The Transfer/Counseling center is available to assist all continuing SMC students.

Students in their first year of college should see a counselor in the Welcome Center: (310) 434-8101

F-1 Visa Students must see a counselor in the International Counseling Center: (310) 434-4218

The Transfer Counseling Center is now seeing students on a Drop-in ("first-come, first-served") basis. Limited same-day appointments are also avaiable.  Students can call (310)434-4210 in the morning to request a same-day appointment for later that day. Additionally, 5-10 minute "express" counseling is  available to address quick questions. Please note: During enrollment, the student wait list may sometimes close much earlier than the posted closing hour depending on student demand.  Please arrive well ahead of posted closing times in order to ensure being seen.
