Academic Counseling

Walk-in Counseling is available for up to 30 minute walk-in sessions (no appointment required) from 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm on Tuesdays and Fridays. Veteran, Military Program, or Corporate Program students can walk-in to see a counselor, or they may phone-in to 714.241.6126. Walk-in and phone-in students are assisted on a first-come, first-served basis.

Walk-in counseling is designed to answer quick questions and is not intended for the creation of educational plans. If you need an educational plan, please schedule an appointment. (Note: Schedule is subject to change. All changes will be posted at the Fountain Valley VRC front desk and on the door of the counselor's office.)

Academic Counseling requires a one hour appointment and assists students to develop an educational plan for meeting academic goals here at Coastline, and (if applicable) for meeting university transfer requirements.

Career Counseling helps students determine which field(s) of study will assist them in preparing for a rewarding career. It requires two appointments and a series of interest assessments.
