Mission Statement

The New Student Counseling Department (NSCD) strives to provide educational programs and services that promote successful learning and student achievement to meet the needs of our diverse community. Our department offers academic, career/vocational, and personal counseling services to credit and non-credit prospective, new, and continuing students. Our goal is to assist students in navigating the educational system through individual counseling, orientation, educational planning, courses, topical workshops and referrals as appropriate. Through these services we support students in making informed choices related to their educational goals: transfer to baccalaureate institutions, achievement of associate degrees, and acquisition of certificates and career/technical skills. In addition, we are committed to supporting students to acquire the necessary basic skills to be successful at CCSF.
