How To Connect With a Counselor

Students are not assigned counselors. We recommend you find a counselor you feel comfortable with and schedule follow-up appointments with the same counselor.

  • Online Appointments: 60 minute counseling appointment via Zoom, an online meeting platform that works on computers, smart phones, or tablets. A zoom account is not necessary to participate. Visit Zoom Help Center for video tutorials.

  • Telephone: 60-minute telephone counseling session. Call our Student Services Center Team at 408-270-6475.

  • Drop In: 30-Minute sessions for English and Math Placement, Prerequisite Verification, Course Repeat, and questions about EVC policies and programs. For all other services Schedule a 60-minute appointment.

  • E-mail:  For quick general questions about college procedures, academic policies, course prerequisites, programs and services send e-mail to mycounselor@evc.edu along with your name and EVC Student ID. Do not send emails about personal academic records, transcripts, assessment, career or personal concerns. Questions are answered in the order received. Due to high volume of student e-mails it may take up to 5 business days to receive a response.
