Please note:

Our services are available by appointment only and depend upon the availability of our Career Counselors and Graduate School Advisors. Our aim is to serve all individuals, including past, present, and future students, seeking guidance. However, during peak demand periods, we will prioritize services for current students.

Our team may exercise discretion in prioritizing students who are new to meeting with our team. In certain instances, appointment requests may be declined due to factors such as labor market conditions, prior no-shows or late cancellations, or instances of impolite or threatening behavior towards our staff. We are committed to providing a respectful and supportive environment for all individuals seeking career guidance.
