Counseling: A Helping Relationship

Our Counseling Program consist of professional assistance in career development, personal or social concerns, and financial aid advisement. Our ultimate intent is to provide students with necessary skills and information that will enable them to think and act independently, while at the same time, continuing to provide the support that students may desire.

Information regarding graduate and professional schools is provided in an effort to encourage students to develop to their highest academic potential.
