All Counseling Appointments by Telephone & Zoom

Fall, Winter and Spring

The Counseling Team is here to support you via Telephone and Zoom appointments during the Fall, Winter and Spring quarters.  During these quarters, you may schedule your appointments with our  online scheduling system.  

Spring Quarter Office Hours

  • Monday - Tuesday: 8:30 a.m. - 6  p.m.
  • Wednesday - Thursday: 8:30 a.m. - 5 p.m.

Got a Quick Question?

Quick Questions is a great opportunity to get your quick, burning questions answered FAST!  Available on a limited basis, Quick Questions are generally 15 minutes in length and handled on a first come-first served basis.  

Keep in mind that educational plans, academic probation issues and transcript evaluations typically require more time than the 15-minutes Quick Questions allows, so we recommend scheduling a 30-minute appointment for those types of topics.  We want to be sure that our counselors can give you the personalized attention and accuracy that you deserve!


To be placed on the drop-in queue or for  general questions, please call 650.949.7423 or 650-949-7821. This service is  first-come, first-served  drop-in  for your 10-15 minute quick questions.   We will accept students at the start of the session.

Quick Questions are as follows:

Mon. 2:00 - 3: 45 p.m.

Tues:  11:30 a.m. - 1:15 p.m. and 2:00 - 5:45 p.m.
