HCC counselors are available to assist students with a variety of issues in a professional, confidential environment. Our goal is to promote emotional health and wellness among our entire student population. 

Our services are free to HCC students and include:

  • Short-term individual counseling
  • Seminars and workshops on study skills, time management, interpersonal skills, test anxiety reduction, and career exploration
  • Supervision and support for students who are on academic restriction, or who have been previously academically suspended or dismissed

Areas of specialization may differ among the counseling faculty, but they have one main objective, student success.

Campus Counseling

We have reopened our campuses to serve students on a limited basis. Virtual services will remain available to assist you. For your safety, all students, faculty and staff will be required to wear a mask while on college property. Physical distancing will also be required, which will limit the number of people in waiting areas, offices, and common areas. For these reasons, we highly recommend taking advantage of our remote services. Please make a phone appointment or email for assistance.
