Academic Counseling

Academic issues can come as a surprise to many students. Often times students have lost their skills, don’t realize it and believe the situation is beyond repair.  Students wonder what to do, where to go and if there is any way to get back on track.    There are always choices to consider and ways to help reach goals. Our professional counselors can give you information to help you make the best choices for your situation.

Career Counseling

Have you ever thought “I don’t know what I want to do” or “I don’t know what my career choices are”?  How about “How much money will I make if I decide to pursue an associate’s degree at Piedmont Tech?” If so, our career counselors can assist you with the information you need to make the best choices.  A career counselor can help you gain greater self-awareness in areas such as interests, values, abilities, and personality style, then will connect you to resources so you can become knowledgeable about jobs and occupations.

Personal Counseling

Sometimes students become overwhelmed with personal issues and don’t know where to turn. Our professional counselors are available to offer assistance with many issues. Some students just drop by to vent, others are looking for outlets and resources from community agencies. Whatever your situation, our counselors will assist you to obtain your goal.

Special Needs Counseling

A learning disability or physical restriction does not have to prevent you from attaining a quality education.  Services are available to students who have disabilities including, but not limited to, visual impairments, hearing impairments, learning disabilities and physical disabilities. A trained counselor is available to support and assist students by coordinating efforts between students, faculty and staff to develop reasonable and appropriate classroom accommodations.  Our Disability Counselor is available to assist you in developing the resources and support services necessary to achieve your goals.
