DCCCD Online Counseling for Students FAQ

Before you take advantage of our free, virtual online counseling sessions, please review the information below.

What does telecounseling look like?
Telecounseling can be done by phone or video on your electronic device (tablet, laptop, desktop computer). You are emailed a link and password to start your session through Webex. We will also send you appointment reminders electronically.

What about my privacy?
Your privacy is very important to us. The Counseling Center follows all HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act) compliance guidelines to ensure the privacy of clients with telecounseling. Learn more about confidentiality.

How do I pay for telecounseling?
Currently enrolled DCCCD students who are 18 years or older are eligible for counseling services at no cost. Currently enrolled students under age 18 should contact their Counseling Center for questions regarding their eligibility for services.

How do I prepare for a telecounseling session?
We recommend finding a quiet, private place away from others and distractions so you can focus on your session as you would when coming into the office.

How long will my session take?
Your initial telecounseling session, similar to an in-office session, will typically last about an hour. Follow-up appointments are up to 45 minutes.
