Professional counselors serve the college community by providing academic, career, and personal counseling to students in a confidential setting. Students can visit with counselors regarding a wide variety of concerns, including managing stress, developing career goals, creating academic plans, and understanding college policies. Counselors may refer students to the appropriate campus and/or community resources to best serve the needs of the student.

Students placed on academic probation or suspension are strongly encouraged to meet with a counselor in order to develop a plan for success.

Personal Counseling

Sometimes it is important to discuss life and academic issues privately with a counselor. Currently enrolled students are invited to set an appointment with an Hennepin Tech Counselor as needed. These services are provided free of charge to currently enrolled students.
