The Counseling Services Department, acting in line with the mission of SUNY Broome Community College, is committed to serving our students through counseling services and campus programming. We are steadfast in our goal of meeting the needs of a variety of people, including students of diverse racial, ethnic and national backgrounds, sexual/affectional orientations, gender identities, physical and mental abilities, languages, ages, religious/spiritual beliefs and socioeconomic backgrounds. The Counseling Services Department applies the skills of education and counseling with the highest degree of professional competence and commitment to facilitate the academic, career, and personal development of students, and to intervene in psychological crises at the College. In order to accomplish this mission, the Department provides a full range of confidential counseling services, including: personal counseling, career counseling, transfer counseling, academic counseling, crisis intervention, and outreach programming.
Counseling Services offers supportive services to help you be successful in college and in life. We are committed to helping you resolve personal problems or concerns that interfere with academic achievement, and to helping you develop behaviors that enhance your decision making skills, increase self confidence, and enable you to meet future challenges. In addition to personal counseling, counselors offer career, transfer, and academic counseling.
Students often experience social, personal, and family concerns while attending college. When such concerns or other barriers to academic success arise, students may turn to one of our professionally trained counselors for help in regaining perspective and purpose. Through individual, confidential meetings, a Counselor can help you explore, understand, and deal with your unique personal issues and help you balance your personal, career, and educational goals.
Counselors also assist students in maintaining personal safety and mental well being while on campus as members of the CARE Team.
In addition to typical life stressors of a college student, the idea of choosing and focusing on a career path may be stressful for some. There are so many options and it can be overwhelming. Our trained counselors can help students sort out their interests and find a career path that suits them best.
We understand that SUNY Broome is often a stepping stone in one’s academic career. It’s never too soon to begin planning for the transfer process. We encourage you to meet with a counselor early in your first semester—during a scheduled appointment or during walk-in hours—to discuss transfer college selection, the transfer application process, academic preparation for transferring, colleges and universities with programs of study in disciplines of interest to you, and transfer scholarships and other resources that are available to you.
You can meet with a counselor to:
- Identify career options
- Resolve personal issues impeding your academic progress
- Address stress or test anxiety
- Research career information such as education required and earning potential
- Learn about career opportunities for various academic programs
- Take and interpret career assessments
- Select an academic program that fits your interests and skills
- Research and apply to transfer colleges
- Review transfer college applications
