What is “Ask a Counselor”?
This service is to provide COM students with a resource to ask general counseling questions that pertain to reaching their educational goal at College of Marin. For new and prospective students, we highly recommend that you make an in-person counseling appointment. After reading the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s) on the next page, you may submit a short question.
