About the Counseling Department

SMC counselors are here to help you create an educational plan to reach your goals, whether you want to transfer from SMC to a university, earn an associates degree or certificate, or take courses for personal development.

There are many counseling programs to support you!

​Student Learning Objectives

  • As a result of participating in a counseling session, students will be able to prioritize and articulate the appropriate coursework needed for the subsequent term, according to their stated academic goal.

  • Using assessment and transcript evaluation results, students will identify their eligibility for, and the proper sequencing of, English/ESL and math courses leading to their educational goals.​
