Counselors at Essex County College work with students to help them grow personally and academically. Students maximize their potential through the services of these professionally trained counselors. Counselors provide students information about College requirements and procedures, academic programs, financial services, and transfer and employment matters.
Students who need assistance with self-improvement concerns, study and test-taking skills, time management, personal issues, and career decision making can find help through his or her counselor.
Counselors are assigned to students according to the academic major or program such as Educational Opportunity Fund (EOF) and Special Programs. Counselors are located throughout the College in divisional and departmental areas and also at West Essex, FOCUS, and Ironbound Extension Centers. This allows the counselor to meet students and consult with faculty members in the area in which the major or program is located. Counselors are available on both an appointment and a walk-in basis. Counselors serve on, and in some cases, chair College wide committees and teach Career Planning and Freshman Orientation courses.
