Thank you for choosing Compton College, where every student is a success story!

Compton College Counseling Department staff is available to help all students clarify life and career objectives, based on aptitudes and interests. We look forward to working with you to develop a personalized course of study designed to help you achieve your goals and navigate the college experience.

Counselors can help students organize their educational plan, select classes, chart academic progress, coordinate career planning, plan for graduation, access important resources, and more! Counseling services are available in the Administration Building by appointment; walk-in sessions are also open to students who have a quick question.
