Counseling Services at Bishop State Community College supports the students' academic, personal, social, and career development needs. In addition, the Counselor serves as a point of contact for students and faculty to explore, investigate, problem-solve, intervene in crisis situations, and provide a referral to community resources to meet the needs of the student.

The Counselor can meet students at all campus locations (Main, Southwest, or Carver) for a face-to-face session. In addition, video sessions are available upon request to ensure accessibility to counseling services.
