Don Nickel - Counseling & Matriculation

Office Hours for Fall Quarter 2014

The Counseling Center only makes appointments for veterans, financial aid extensions and probation students. For everyone else, I am available to meet with you on a drop-in basis. I look forward to assisting you.

For drop-in, you must sign in at the Counseling Center front desk. You may request to see a particular counselor or academic advisor or wait for the next available person to call you off the drop-in list. Students are taken on a first come first serve basis. Sometimes the Center is slow and the wait time is minimal. Sometimes the wait can be an hour or more. Always bring a book to read. The Center is always busiest the first two weeks and the last 5 weeks of the quarter.

Weeks three through six are a great time to come in to update your student ed plan. Traffic in the Counseling Center slows down a bit and we have more time to assist you.

Always bring with you any information (transcripts, articulation agreements, forms etc.) that will expedite our time together.

My drop-in hours are very much subject to change depending on the needs of the Counseling Center.
