Academic, Transfer, and Personal Counseling Services
Our EOPS counselors will help you form your academic and career goals, and develop both short-term and long-term educational plans. Personal counseling services are also available to help students adjust to college life.
EOPS counselors work with EOPS students to:
- Develop a plan of courses needed to achieve students' educational and/or career goals
- Find the right combination of courses to fit students' needs and skill levels;
- Ensure that students are on track to meet SMC graduation and certification requirements, as well as to transfer to baccalaureate institutions and/or professional schools.
