If you are a graduating high school senior or a new college student, and you want to meet with a counselor before August 23. (First day of Fall 2021 semester), you will need to enroll in the Summer 2021 Counseling 095 class.
DVC Counselors do not meet with high school students unless it is through the Counseling 095 class. We refer all high school students to their high school counselors, career centers, or their principals office.
Once the fall term begins (August 23, 2021) DVC college students may schedule a 30 minute counseling appointment. During the fall term, we also have Express Counseling (15 minute drop-in session) each day for quick questions.
