About Advising and Counseling
Advising and Counseling at Oakton Community College was founded on the mission to support the academic and personal development of our students. We have constructed an encouraging and unbiased environment, where our foremost goal is to provide assistance to students in successfully achieving their academic and professional goals. Our staff is trained in student development, higher education, counseling, and psychology, and this enables us to ensure that Oakton's students are receiving services and support systems to best meet their diverse needs.
We are committed to helping students navigate the transitional periods of education. This includes academic advising and personal counseling in individual and group appointments, workshops, classroom visits and volunteer activities. As well, we are actively involved in helping maintain good academic standing and developing skills, for students who need additional support. These student-centered services help foster an environment of independent learning and self-advocacy, in an effort to promote student success.
Advising and Counseling looks forward to meeting our student population and helping them become the best that they can be.
