About Us

Counseling Services & Student Success strives to maximize students' individual growth and development by assisting students toward greater maturity that includes openness to new experiences, self-awareness, self acceptance, assuming responsibility for one's life, developing relationships and developing a philosophy of life.

Services provided in the Office of Counseling Services & Student Success are free and confidential. Confidentiality means that the counselor will respect the student's right to privacy by not divulging to anyone those matters discussed in counseling sessions. No information obtained through counseling sessions will be released without specific permission by the student, either within or outside the college community. However, confidentiality is not absolute in that exceptions to the rule exist.

The exceptions are:
  • The individual's serious intent to harm himself or another person obliges a counselor to notify those persons necessary to prevent the harm from happening. 
  • Any suspicion of child abuse must be reported to the Child Protection and Permanency (CP&P) agency, formerly the Division of Youth and Family Services (DYFS).
