Lake Tahoe Community College counselors are trained to help students reach their educational and career goals by providing career and academic counseling, helping students to explore their options and select a major, and by providing students with information to meet transfer and degree or certificate requirements. They also assist students with other issues that can impact their academic performance.

All students are encouraged to talk with one of the counselors, located in the One-Stop Office. Please bring a copy of any previous course work to discuss course planning.
