PCC offers free, short-term counseling to currently enrolled students (excluding Community Education). Service eligibility begins two weeks prior to a given term. In counseling, we discuss personal concerns students may be facing and work with students to develop new ways of addressing concerns. Many concerns are addressed within eight sessions or less.
