During the Winter intersession and Summer semester there are no appointments available, only Express Counseling. Due to high volume, there are no appointments available during the first two weeks of the Fall and Spring terms. Appointments will be available beginning the third week of the term.
The Counseling Center is committed to aiding each student in establishing, clarifying, and pursuing personal, educational, and career goals. The primary responsibility of the counseling staff is to provide counseling support for Rio Hondo students, faculty, and the campus community.
Counselors can assist students with a variety of issues: program planning, choosing a major, graduation requirement, transfer requirements to 4-year colleges and universities, personal problems, scholarships and financial aid programs, tutoring, and communication with a professor.
Students should make an appointment well in advance of registration to meet with a counselor. Contact the Counseling Center at (562) 908-3410 or visit us on the first floor of the Student Services Building SS160.
