When to See A Counselor


Though our counselors are available at anytime to help if needed, the following are the most critical times you should plan to have an in-person meeting with a counselor to make sure you stay on track to completing your education at PCC.

First-Time Student Appointment

After you apply to PCC and complete both your online orientation and placement tests, sign up for a group counseling session to plan your classes and prepare to register for the first time.
