The primary goal of counseling is to provide the necessary academic support services for students to succeed at the College of Alameda.  The counselors are an integral part of the education process, recognizing the need of each student with whom they come into contact.

Counselors provide current and valid information, using many resources, so that the student is prepared to investigate alternatives, establish priorities, and develop an Educational Plan.

On behalf of the Counselors and Counseling Staff, we wish you all the best in your academic and professional endeavors and look forward to meeting you soon!
