Drop-In Counseling

Tuesdays, Wednesdays & Thursdays: 12:30-2:30 pm EST
A drop-in counselor is available to answer quick questions only. The drop-in counselor is not able to conduct document reviews, as those require more preparation and time than can be accommodated during a drop-in meeting. If you wish to speak to a drop-in counselor, please fill out our Career Center Drop-In Hours Registration Form.
