Counseling and Advising

Counseling and Advising

We want you to succeed at Montgomery College. Our counselors and advisors work closely with students to help them meet their personal, career, and educational goals.

Counseling faculty help students with their personal, career, and educational goals and assist students with selecting the courses that are right for them. Counselors also teach student success courses, such as First Year Seminar, and provide interventions and support when students need help.
