Counseling Appointments

This academic year, I am working on a reduced schedule. That means that I have fewer appointments available to see students. However, three other counselors are seeing international students. They are Mike Gonzales, Carol Okay, and Dennis Franco. If you are having difficulty scheduling an appointment with me, remember that you can also see one of these other three counselors.

To schedule an appointment online, visit the Counseling Center website:

New appointments open up each morning, so if you try and are unable to schedule one, check again first thing the next morning.

Important Changes to Haas Transfer Requirements

Students planning on applying to the Haas School of Business at UC Berkeley for Fall 2012 admission need to be aware of some important changes to the admissions requirements. Visit the Haas website to learn more:

UC TAG Information Update

Because there is a new system for submitting the TAG application, the DVC Counseling Center has instituted a new process for seeking help from a counselor regarding a TAG application:
1. Students should first create an account on the UC TAG website and completely fill out the TAG application. If they need help with that process, they should visit the Transfer Center at DVC. Here is a link to the UC TAG website:
2. Students submitting a TAG for Davis or Santa Cruz must get approval from a counselor, so after filling out the TAG application completely online, students must make an appointment with a DVC counselor. For information on how to schedule an appointment, visit Schedule the appointment for early to mid-September; if you wait until later, you might not be able to get an appointment with a counselor before the submission deadline of September 30.
3. Remember Berkeley and Los Angeles do not offer a TAG, but all other UC's do, and F-1 international students are invited to apply for the TAG.
4. Before you submit a TAG application, be sure to read the TAG criteria for the campus(es) to which you are applying to be sure you meet the criteria. You the student are responsible for understanding the various TAG criteria and making sure that you meet those criteria.
5. Be sure to submit a UC application for the campuses to which you submitted a TAG during the UC application filing period, November 1-30.
