Online Services

If you need an EOPS/CARE/NEXTUP Counseling Appointment, you can  set-up by logging into your Student Portal (MyVCCCD) account and by utilizing the online appointment scheduling tool referred to as Starfish. Please note that when students schedule their own appointment, there are some staff listed for appointment availability that are NOT counselors; if students schedule themselves with non-counseling staff by mistake, our front desk will cancel the appointment and attempt to contact the student to reschedule with an actual counselor.
