Counseling

Counseling services at Long Beach City College are in place to help the student identify and clarify personal, career, and educational goals. Counselors seek to help students successfully meet deadlines, and gain career and transfer information. Our counselors are here to assist students and facilitate their positive development.

We offer services such as Academic Counseling, Career Exploration, Educational Planning, College Transfer, and many others to help students achieve their educational goals.


Counseling Department Offices (LAC and PCC) are closed Monday, January 17 in observance of the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday. Tuesday, January 18 through Thursday, January 27, the Counseling Department will be offering remote services ONLY. Our January hours of operation are Monday – Thursday 8:00am-6:00pm.

If you are a Continuing student and need an educational plan, probation and transfer information, please make an appointment by selecting Counseling Appointments (Starting November 1st, we will be providing our counseling services through Zoom platform).  If you are a Continuing Student and have a quick question, please select First-come, First-served (FCFS) Counselors. If you are a New Student, please select Welcome Center Counselors.
