Schedule An Appointment

Welcome to our appointment scheduling page. You can choose to schedule your counseling appointment in one of the following ways: 

You can choose to have your appointment in-person, by Zoom or phone. In-person appointments are held in the Counseling Department at your chosen location. If you choose a Zoom appointment, a Zoom link will be sent to your Palomar student email. If you choose a phone appointment, a counselor will call you at your scheduled appointment time.

Appointments are available Monday-Friday. We offer limited appointments on Saturdays and evenings (virtual appointments only).
