The Academic Advising Office will be closed all day on Friday April 11, 2014 for professional development activities. The advising office will resume normal business hours on Monday April 14, 2014.

Welcome to the El Centro Counseling & Advisement Center online. The departments within this Center form the hub of student services at the college, providing a wide variety of centrally located programs and activities to support students’ pursuit of their academic goals.

From the admissions process to the graduation ceremony, our primary goal is to help remove the barriers to student success – through our programs, our services, our expertise and our personal support. I hope you will investigate all the areas in the Counseling & Advisement Center, and avail yourself of the assistance that can help you reach your goals.
