Counselors are responsible for working with students and their families to create an educational plan.  Counselors also assist students in finding answers to educational, vocational, and personal questions.  The counseling office, in cooperation with the Career Center, also acts as an informational agency providing college catalogs and brochures, scholarship information and vocational and occupational materials.  College admission applications and work permits are also obtained from this department.  In addition, t his department serves as a referral agency, suggesting sources for individual and family counseling.  A student conflict resolution program is available to all students.  If a student is involved in a conflict with another student or knows of a conflict occurring between other students, they should request to see their counselor or dean.
