We are here to assist you in choosing and pursuing your career and educational goals at Mendocino College. You are not alone, if you do not have a major or career direction. Most students are undecided when they enroll in college!
If you are unsure of what path to take, we can recommend classes to get you started. We will explain some basic options and general requirements that apply to all college certificate or degree programs
Once you do have a major, we can help you to set up a plan to achieve your certificate or degree. If your goal is to transfer to a 4-year school, we can help you to choose a transfer destination and explain what courses you will need to prepare for transfer.
We can assist you to be successful in college by connecting you with any number of available services and College and Career Success courses. As counselors, we are here to listen, make suggestions, and help you make decisions that are right for you. You can view us as advocated, mentors, teachers or "life" coaches. If you have a verifiable disability that creates limitations on reaching your educational goals, please contact the Disability Resource Center at (707) 468-3031.
All college students are encouraged to meet with a counselor to develop an educational plan. This plan details the courses that must be completed in order to accomplish your educational objective.
