Information About Counseling at Berkeley College

Berkeley College values its students and is committed to providing resources and support for the “whole student.” Our counseling services exist to collaborate with faculty and staff to maintain student wellness and facilitate student success. We approach each individual holistically, helping each student achieve a healthy balance in his or her many life roles and assisting in the successful transition into college and through graduation. 

Supportive counseling services are available to help students:

  • Clarify goals
  • Learn to make effective life choices
  • Overcome problems
  • Achieve more satisfying relationships
  • Improve academic performance

At no additional cost, students can meet with trained counselors in a safe and confidential environment. No record of counseling is maintained in students’ academic files.

Counseling services are offered at all on-site and online campuses. Call or stop by to schedule an appointment.
