The Counseling Department at LATTC assists students in making decisions regarding educational, career, and personal concerns. Counseling is available for educational, transfer and career exploration. These services are provided for professional counselors through individual counseling, workshops and referrals to resources on and off campus.
The primary goal of the Counseling Center is to provide opportunities for students to clarify their values and goals, to make decisions, to develop self-confidence, self-direction and self-esteem.
An academic counseling session begins with educational goal-setting, exploring education options and opportunities, evaluating the student’s educational background, and providing the student with clear, concise, up-to-date educational information. Counselors can assist individuals to assess their interests, strengths, abilities, and values; to set goals; to make plans to accomplish those goals; and to address personal problems or barriers that impede plans to fulfilling those educational goals.
A counseling session will also assist individuals in selecting appropriate programs of study relative to their chosen objectives. Individual student/counselor conferences are available by appointment. Counseling is available on a walk-in basis only during registration periods.

These courses are designed to help students become better acquainted with the educational opportunities at Los Angeles Trade Technical College, and will assist students in developing programs of study that will help them attain their educational goals.
