Counseling Appointments
Schedule a counseling appointment


In accordance with Long Beach City College policy and to provide students with the best counseling service, children will not attend a counseling appointment.  Additionally, children will not be left unsupervised in the counseling reception area.

If the following policy cannot be adhered to, your appointment will be rescheduled. Your cooperation and understanding are greatly appreciated. 

Counseling Attendance Policy

Beginning Spring 2017, the Counseling Department will begin implementing the following “No-Show” policy.

If you miss two counseling appointments within 6 months without canceling at least two hours prior to your scheduled appointment, you cannot make another individual 30-minute appointment until you are cleared. In order to be cleared, you will need to speak to a counselor during a 10-minute express counseling time (No educational plan will be developed).

Note: You are also considered a no-show if you check in more than 10 minutes past your scheduled appointment time.

If you need to cancel your counseling appointment, you have three options:

  1. Cancel your appointment online.
  2. Contact the Counseling Department and leave a message with your name and LBCC Student ID number.
  3. Come into the Counseling Office at either campus and cancel the appointment in person.
