Counseling Center

Attention Students!

Mendocino College is committed to protecting your health and safety. For the Spring 2022 semester, we have transitioned to more on-ground classes and student services.  All counselors will have designated days to accommodate in-person appointments, if preferred.  However, please know that remote services will continue to be offered through Zoom, Cranium Café and/or telephone.

NOTE: The college requires all students and staff to show proof of being fully vaccinated prior to coming to campus. Those who do not show proof of vaccination will have to provide negative COVID-19 test results on a weekly basis. In-person appointments will require proper masking regardless of vaccination status, and are offered in safe, alternative larger rooms on campus and not in the Counseling Center.

About the Counseling Center - 707.468.3048

Seeing a counselor is probably one of the most important things you can do to ensure your academic success.  Mendocino College counselors help students clarify their needs, make decisions, set goals, and deal effectively with personal obstacles.  When you first meet with a counselor at Mendocino College, your counselor will advise you in selecting appropriate classes to get started and will help you to develop a plan to achieve your goal at Mendocino College.

Spring 2022 Hours:
Monday, Wednesday, Friday: 8am - 5pm
Tuesday, Thursday: 8am - 6pm

The Counseling Center can further assist you by connecting you with any number of available services and College and Career Success courses. Below are some of the services you will find in the Counseling Center at Mendocino College.

Educational Planning

All college students are encouraged to meet with a counselor to develop an educational plan. This plan details the courses that must be completed in order to accomplish your educational objective.  New students are required to meet with a counselor to create an abbreviated ed plan (one or two semesters) to qualify for priority registration.  Before enrolling for a third semester, students are required to have a comprehensive ed plan.

Career Advising

Free career assessment is available through the Career Hub, located in MacMillan Hall, Room 1250 on the Ukiah campus. We will analyze your results and discuss them with you. The Hub also organizes an annual career fair and can assist you in preparing for a job interview and writing a résumé. For more information visit the Career Hub in MacMillan 1250 or contact them via their webpage mendocino.edu/career-hub.

Confidential Referral/Grade Check Program

Counselors support the instructional staff by encouraging confidential referrals of students. Students who respond will be offered help with personal issues that are hampering their progress and/or referred to other appropriate resources on and off campus. Students are encouraged to make an appointment with a counselor if they receive a letter regarding a referral.
