It is the aim of Oxnard College counselors to provide individual and group counseling sessions in which students feel free to discuss educational plans, career interests, and personal concerns, as part of the process of making meaningful life decisions.

Academic Counseling

If you have questions about your major for a certificate, graduation and/or transfer to a four-year college or university, you are welcome to see any counselor.

Information on A.A. or A.S. degrees and transfer requirements are listed in the Oxnard College catalog or can be obtained from counselors. If you are undecided about a college major, the counseling faculty can assist you in exploring and formulating your educational and career goals. You can sign up for one of several career and life planning courses or personal growth classes, and you can see a counselor for help in making a decision.

Personal Counseling

Oxnard College counselors are trained professionals available to help you with personal concerns. Counselor-counselee interaction leads to exploration of immediate alternatives or options that will assist in decision making. If further assistance is necessary, counselors can provide referral service to experts in personal and social problems.

Career Counseling

A career is much more than just a job; it is a way of life. It is the way most people will spend one-third of their lives. Recent research indicates that most people average five career and ten job changes in their lifetime. Our counselors can help you develop lifelong skills that will serve you in making present and future career decisions.

Counselors assist you early in your academic program to relate aptitudes, experience, attitudes, and resources in developing your career goals and alternatives through individual and group counseling, workshops, seminars, academic classes, and other career information programs. They can also guide you in learning about clusters of occupations and employment data, position requirements and related information, and provide information on and interpretation of the labor market.

Career and Personal Assessment

Any Oxnard College student can receive a customized plan for personal and career development. An assessment service is available simply by making an appointment with the Career or Counseling Center.

By using the services of these centers you can learn about your abilities and talents, and how they affect your
