What We Offer

Center, current and prospective students are assisted with making smooth transitions from high school, work or other settings to an educational program and college life. Services offered through the Counseling Center include academic support such as study techniques, college transfer, disability services, personal counseling, referral to community resources, career counseling, and other forms of assistance. The counselors are also available to assist with the HCC admission application process.

Counselors assist students with understanding the differences between high school and college, college level study skills, time management/prioritizing, test-taking/test anxiety, stress management and academic advising. We realize that along with academic stressors during the semester, students also have personal problems such as relationship issues; physical or psychological illnesses; financial/job-related concerns; marital or family discord; and/or legal problems. Therefore, counseling is made available for students with academic, personal crisis, and other life issues. Upon request, an individual may be referred to professional mental health intervention, drug and alcohol rehabilitation, community medical health, and other resources as available. Students may be referred to resources on campus such as Student Support Services, PRIDE, WOE, Scholarships or the Center for Academic Excellence.
