goals, and manage the stresses of student life. Download the Counseling Brochure.
Students who wish to gain more information about themselves in relation to potential
career are invited to schedule an appointment for assessment. Once interest and personality
inventories have been completed, an evaluation is provided by a counselor, and students
can begin to make appropriate educational and career plans. Contact us today to get
started on a career assessment or to schedule a career appointment!

Over half the students at CCAC plan to transfer to four-year colleges and universities
to continue their education. Students should meet with a counselor to identify the college they plan to attend after CCAC, and the major they intend to
pursue. Counselors assist students by helping select courses that are transferable
to four-year colleges and universities. CCAC has articulation agreements with a variety
of institutions to ensure the transferability of CCAC courses. Click here to learn more!
