Counseling / Advising
One of the most important steps for college success is to visit your counselor. Counsleors can provide information regarding transfers, cerftificates & degrees, majors, etc. They can also help you create your Individual Education Plan (IEP) which will outline the courses that you will need to complete your educational goals. You should plan to visit your counselor at least once each semester, and because the Counseling Office if very busy at the beginning and end of every semester, it is best to see a counselor in the middle of each term.
After you've met with your counselor and have a plan for the classes you want to take, then you're ready to register for classes. You can do this online through My Solano. Your registration plan should include a set of course alternatives. It's also a good idea to have the Schedule of Classes with you and know how to read it.
After you have completed your first semester at SCC, it's recommended that you have a follow up meeting with a counselor to review your completed classes and update your IEP. It's a good idea to meet with a counselor at least once every semester to stay on target. Please keep in mind that the Counseling Office is very busy at the beginning and end of every semester. Best times to book a counseling appointment would be in the middle of each semester.
