Counseling Services

Welcome to the Parkland College Counseling Services office. Our office covers a number of counseling-related services for students, including Academic Advising, Accessibility Services, Mental Health Counseling, and Career Services. Assistance from our Academic  Advising, Accessibility Services, and Mental Health Counseling units is available for current students;  Career Services assistance is available for prospective and current students.

What kind of help do we provide? Take a look:

  • Academic Advising: We offer the academic and educational planning support students need to complete their chosen degree or certificate. We assist students with course selection, transfer options, and guidance throughout their educational path.
  • Counseling: Short-term, solution-focused, and confidential mental health counseling is available for currently enrolled students. Students experiencing significant distress are seen as soon as possible.
  • Career Services: Students come for help with exploring their interests, skills, and values, to select college majors and career goals. Services include assistance with resume writing, interviewing skills, and other job search strategies.
  • Accessibility Services: Parkland offers academic accommodations for students with documented disabilities. These accommodations can include alternate testing arrangements, note takers, textbooks in alternate format, sign language interpreters, captioning services, and adaptive aids.
