Takoma Park-Silver Spring Counseling & Advising

Please be advised that due to a major renovation and relocation project, the  Takoma Park/Silver Spring Campus Counseling and Advising Office will be closed Monday, December 22, 2014 and Tuesday, December 23, 2014. Student appointments for these dates are being rescheduled. Counselors will be available to address student emergencies that may arise during this transition.

The Counseling and Advising Office is being relocated to the second floor (current location of the Financial Aid Office- ST221) of the Charlene R. Nunley Student Services Center, in an effort to better serve students.  The Financial Aid Office is moving to the first floor (current location of the Counseling and Advising Office- ST 122).  During the winter break, this move will take place and be completed by January 5, 2015, when the College reopens.
