Our goal is to provide you with a counseling appointment that addresses your needs and goals in a timely and productive manner. Counselors and staff make every effort to meet your needs and interests as efficiently as possible.
During this current time of budget constraints, the General Counseling Office is working with greatly reduced staff, of both counselors and support staff. We recognize that you may have difficulty getting through to us by phone or you may experience a longer wait than usual, for an appointment. Therefore, we would like to engage you in making your appointment more productive, by asking you to do the following:
Preparing for a Counseling Appointment
- If you are requesting an Educational Plan for Financial Aid or Direct Loan, you must bring all necessary paperwork to the counseling appointment. This may include:
If you have not yet taken your English and/or Math Placement tests, please do so prior to your appointment.Please arrive on time for your appointment. Check in at the kiosk screen outside of the counseling office window, or with a staff member at the front counter when you arrive for your appointment. If you are more than 10 minutes late you will need to reschedule your appointment.
- Ed Plan Certification Page (counselor signature page)
- Copy of your current Ed Plan (If you have one)
- Any prior college transcripts, qualifying Advanced Placement (AP) test scores, and/or high school transcripts not on file at NVC. Please bring official transcripts with you to your counseling appointment.
We ask that you give us 24-hour notice if you need to cancel or change an existing appointment. If you miss your appointment you will be marked as a "no-show." If you have 2 or more no-shows, you will not be allowed to schedule another appointment for the rest of the semester. You will be referred to meet with a counselor on a drop-in basis at that point. You can contact us by phone at (707) 256-7220 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
