The Counseling Department offers informational workshops to educate students and assist them in reaching their academic/career goals.  See below for more details.    


All New Students must attend an AAW in order to receive priority registration. Priority registration is extremely beneficial at a college campus. You will have the opportunity to register for classes much sooner than other students. In the AAW you meet with a counselor who will assist you in understanding your assessment results (START test) and help you develop a 1st semester plan as a new student. View a list of dates for an AAW.


The Counseling Department has developed this workshop to help students understand his/her academic and/or progress standing.  Students will learn strategies to get back on track and regain good standing with the college.  The workshop will also cover the consequences of being on probation such as unit limitation, financial aid eligibility, and priority registration.  Students who receive a probation email notification are strongly encouraged to attend the workshop.

"The academy has shown me a lot more than I even suspected. It's showed me the physical demands that you need to reach and the instructors push you over the limits just so that when go to do the real thing you can achieve that. You'll push yourself and eventually reach the limits that you thought you were never capable of. You get really hands-on with all your crew and working with each of the instructors. The most valuable thing that I've learned in the academy is learning to work to your own level of excellence. Being at the college has been a great experience."
