Office hours are usually from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, including the noon hour. Occasionally a student cannot make these hours, in which case, the Counselor and student can arrange for a time that fits with the studentís schedule. Appointments usually last 50 minutes and are free to enrolled students of Pierce College.

Typically, students wanting to utilize counseling services will be asked to complete some counseling paperwork, which can be done at the initial meeting or can be downloaded in advance. The paperwork takes approximately 15 minutes and students are encouraged to arrive early so as not to take time from the scheduled appointment. Or, if the student downloads the forms in advance, he/she can complete them prior to scheduled appointment.
