Counseling’s primary goal is to provide academic support services necessary for students to succeed at the College of Alameda. Counselors are an integral part of the education process, recognizing the needs of each student with whom they come into contact. Counselors provide current and valid information, using many resources, so that students are prepared to investigate alternatives, establish priorities, and develop an Educational Plan.
