STEM counselors are available to help you plan your academic goals. Meet with a counselor at least twice a semester to support and guide or assist you with academic and career planning. Counselors also assist students with selecting academic majors, exploring transfer options, and developing plans to meet your educational goals (certificate, AA/AS, transfer).

Counselors are available to meet with students Monday through Friday. Students do not need to be members of the STEM/SRI Program to meet with counselors. Any SMC student may make an appointment.
