Academic Advising and Counseling at KCC
Why See A Counselor?
Counselors at Kapi`olani Community College work with students to help them to find the best path to reach their goals and be successful. Counselors provide:
- program advising
- academic planning
- transfer planning
- career exploration and planning
- learning assistance
- personal counseling.
Through this counseling you can get help to attain your educational, career and life goals, and to promote self-development and personal awareness. When something in your life comes up that blocks your path, it may be a good idea to see a counselor.Counseling is a process of sharing thoughts and feelings in confidence with someone who is objective and a good listener. Counselors help students by discussing new approaches to solving a problem, by giving needed information, through referral to a helpful organization in the community, by helping to clarify thoughts and feelings, or just through listening.
