Personal Counseling

The Advising and Counseling Center provides a supportive and professional environment promoting the exploration and development of individual strengths that encourage academic success and personal growth. Personal counselors assist students in making decisions about career choices, educational programs, college transfer, and personal concerns. Counselors follow the principle that individual concerns merit privacy and confidentiality. All records and information revealed during personal counseling are confidential, although there are circumstances under which confidential information must be shared. The SCCC Student Advisement Center follows the guidelines presented by the American Counseling Association and the National Association of Social Workers Code of Ethics. Both state that disclosing information that could prevent clear and imminent harm to the client or others is not a violation of privacy.
