Academic Catalogs


The mission of the Coastline College Counseling Department is to guide and support our diverse student population through their educational journey, while serving as the bridge across academic disciplines and student services throughout Coastline College to promote access, understanding, and communication. By providing a holistic approach in proactive educational planning with practices focused on innovative, equitable, and enriching services, the counseling department leads students to empowerment and success.

All Coastline students have easy access to professionally trained counselors that can assist with clarifying educational, career and life goals, personal counseling, educational planning and course selection, and college and university transfer services. New, continuing, and re-entry students are encouraged to meet with a counselor to map out and discuss their educational plans, and learn about college programs and opportunities designed to enhance student success, extend learning “beyond the classroom,” and prepare for the next steps after Coastline.

Counselors are available at Coastline’s College Center in Fountain Valley, Newport Beach Campus, Garden Grove Campus, and Westminster-Le-Jao Campus throughout the academic year. Academic counseling and advisement for military students is available by emailing, or by calling the Counseling Office (714) 241-6162.
