Counselor Contact Information during Distance Learning

 

How do I contact my counselor? You can drop in on open zoom office hours, email your counselor  or call to schedule a phone or zoom appointment at 661-222-1220 ext. 141. Below you will find the zoom links as well as counselor email information.

 

Students: Your Counselors are available for students without an appointment

during Open Office Hours via drop in “Zoom” (for students only). A virtual waiting

room will be in place, you will be let in once your Counselor is available. If the

counselor is faced with a student emergency, all students in the wait room will be

removed so you don’t have to keep waiting. You can also email your counselor

directly with questions! Counselors will get back to you within 24 hours.

Remember, counselors are available by appointment and more time may be

opened up based on need. For more information click on the Counselor Virtual Flyer here.

 

Counselor Zoom Office Hours are: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 12:40-1:40 PM
