Email counseling is NOT for scheduling appointments (see links on Counseling page)

 

Examples of information we need for commonly asked questions:

Classes for next semester:

  • Please email the counseling email with your student id#
  • Attach unofficial transcripts (if your transcripts have not been evaluated)
  • State your major and goal (ex. Associates, Transfer-where to)
  • Ask for help deciding on classes for the upcoming semester (ex. Fall 2020)

 

New students with classes from another college:

  • Email the counseling email with your student id#
  • Attach unofficial transcripts from the other college(s)
  • State your major and goal (ex. Associates, Transfer-where to)
  • Ask for help deciding on classes for the upcoming semester (ex. Fall 2020)
  • Official transcripts from previous schools must be received & evaluated for 1-hour appointments 
  • Official transcript evaluation is currently taking 3 months on average.

 

Clearing Prerequisites Quickly:

 

Discussing Prerequisites with a counselor:

  • Email the counseling email with your student id#
  • Attach your unofficial Prerequisite "Proof" (ex. transcript(s), AP scores)
  • State the class(es) you're requesting to take & the reason you believe you've met the prerequisite
  • State the semester you plan to enroll in the classes
  • Attach the Proof of Prerequisite Form with all of the information filled out
  • Advisories are 'suggested' but will not limit your ability to register for a course
  • Prerequisites are checked & enforced
  • You do not need to turn in anything for Advisories just Prerequisites

 

ALWAYS Include: Full Name, Student ID#, Specific Reason for contact (unofficial transcripts as needed).

Send an email with ALL required information to miracoun@sdccd.edu allow 3-4 business days for a reply. The more information you provide in your initial email, the more efficient the process will be.

 

 

 

Forms are now being turned in online here. Videos on the Forms website fully explain the process; however, you may need to discuss specific forms with a counselor before submission. You may also email counseling as necessary for instruction/help for filling out the forms.

Our 1 hour appointments are done via Zoom. You can schedule a 1 hour long-term education plan appointment on our Scheduling Appointments Online page. Here is a link to a Zoom Student Guide.
