Create a pathway to success.

Skyline College’s academic counselors are here to provide guidance and information to empower you to succeed and meet your educational goals. We want you to make the most of your time at Skyline College; meeting with a counselor can help ensure you develop a plan of action that works for you.

Counselors also work in collaboration with the staff of the Career Center and Transfer Center and other student services to support student success.

Types of Counseling

It’s important that you give yourself enough time to plan for your success. Don't wait until the last minute to schedule your counseling appointment. To plan for the fall semester, make an appointment in February or March. To plan for spring, make an appointment in September or October.

Counseling Appointments are 30 minutes long. They are appropriate for long-term educational planning, clarifying your progress toward graduation and transfer, dealing with probation or dismissal questions.

You can make an appointment:

  • In-person: Visit the Counseling Counter in Bldg. 2 (in front of room 2218)
  • By phone: Call the Counseling Office at (650) 738-4318

Drop-in counseling is offered on a limited basis, for quick answers and referrals. Drop-in counseling is not appropriate for students who need Student Educational Plans (SEP), AA/AS or Certificate evaluations, transfer evaluations or who are on academic probation or dismissal.

Please call 650-738-4318 for available drop-in times.

Electronic counseling provides students with the opportunity to receive limited counseling via email. This tool is especially useful for students who cannot come to campus during the Counseling Center's hours of operation.
