Counseling

We want you to succeed at Chaffey College and that means providing you with plenty of support to meet your academic and career goals. We are also here to help you address any personal issues that affect your success. Chaffey’s counselors can help you with course placement, orientation, educational plans, prerequisite verification, prerequisite challenge, academic renewal, unit overload and preliminary graduation checks. Currently enrolled students who would like to meet with a counselor should call a week before they’d like to meet to schedule an appointment.
