Counseling Office

Welcome to the Moorpark College Counseling Website!

The Counseling Department offers a wide range of professional counseling services for current and prospective students.  This website is intended to provide useful information to help you succeed in your personal and educational endeavors. As information is constantly changing, please try to confirm the data you receive.

The role of the community college counselor is unique and complex. Moorpark College Counselors are professional, credentialed faculty who utilize a variety of skills to assist students in reaching their goals. Title 5 of the California Education Code identifies three required categories of counseling: Academic, Career, and Personal.

Typical areas of assistance to students may include choosing a major or career appropriate to their values, interests and abilities, coping with personal issues and completion of the educational planning process to include appropriate course selection to meet requirements and personal goals.

Counselors also teach classes designed to facilitate personal and career exploration and development as well as academic survival skills. Counseling services are available during the day and evenings, by appointment or drop-in basis. Call the counseling office for the current availability.

Counselors are located throughout the campus and work primarily with certain majors -- they are specialists in their academic and vocational areas while providing educational planning, career development and personal counseling. You may meet with any counselor, but ideally meet with one who specializes in your field of interest.
