The Guidance Office is open from 7:30 am – 4:00 pm

Guidance Counselors are generally available for student drop-in appointments during brunch or lunch. Appointments are recommended for other times during the day as Counselors are often in classroom presentations and are required to attend meetings and conferences, which may pull them away from the office at various times. 

All Staff members attend collaboration meetings on Monday mornings until 9:00 am and are unavailable for appointments during collaboration meeting time.



Please allow at least 24 hours for any/all documents

that need to be signed by the Guidance Office.

This includes De Anza/Foothill College Concurrent Enrollment Forms and Waiver Forms
