Work at VCC
At VCC, we know that returning to school can be exciting but also stressful and confusing. Our professional counsellors are committed to working with both students and prospective students to help make the transition and their experience at VCC a successful one.
Whether you are a student or a college applicant, VCC offers professional, free and confidential counselling to help you choose a program, plan a career, manage a course load, make decisions and deal with stress, anxiety and personal matters. Counsellors also provide workshops on a variety of topics including study skills, stress and time management, communication skills and job search. Workshops may be offered as part of scheduled class time or during non–class time.
If you are not sure whether to make your appointment with a counsellor or a program adviser, consult this page.
