Welcome to Ventura College’s Online Counseling Page!
Here you will be able to utilize four different options to interact with a Ventura College Counselor. First check our frequently asked questions as it may already be answered for you and could save you time. Second you can submit an inquiry via our online counseling form. Your third option is to “drop by” now for a 5 - 10 minute video chat in Cranium Café (check the status on the Counselor card below). Your fourth option is to schedule an online future 45 minute appointment for a future counseling session in Cranium Café. These appointments are only for academic, career, transfer, or personal counseling. Note: They are not for Psychological Services or in-crisis emergency counseling services. If you are experiencing a psychological crisis, please call 911 immediately. If you are in need of non-crisis psychological services, please contact Ventura College’s Health Services at (805) 289-6346 during regular business hours.
Before using these services students must have applied to the college and have received a 900 Student Identification number. If you need assistance with these processes please contact the Student Connect Center.
