The mission of the Phoenix College Counseling Department is to meet the diverse academic, career, and personal enrichment needs of all students and our campus community.  Learning-centered instruction, counseling, and consultation are provided to support and assist students with goal development and completion.

The Counseling Department at Phoenix College can help you focus on issue assessment, problem-solving, and decision-making as they relate to academic, career, and personal goal achievement. In addition to referral to community providers for mental health and/or crisis services, this can include:

  • Consultation
  • Crisis Response
  • Academic Counseling
  • Student Success and Retention
  • Career Counseling
  • Counseling / Personal Development Courses (CPD & AAA)
  • Referral to Community Resources

CARE / Early Alert

The CARE (Early Alert) program is a team effort by faculty, coordinators, and support staff to increase student retention, success, and completion rates.  We realize students encounter challenges throughout the course of the semester. The early alert program is most effective when a referral is submitted within the first three to four weeks of the semester however, a referral is welcome at any time.
