Beginning the week of April 4, through the end of Spring Quarter, we will offer in-person services for those student-facing services four days a week – Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays – from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.  Virtual services will continue to be available for students who choose such services or cannot make it to campus.

In response to COVID-19 and our collective commitment to prioritize the health and safety of our students, staff, and faculty at North, most classes are to be delivered online or in alternative formats for the duration of Summer and Fall quarters.


Counselors are faculty members holding masters and doctorate degrees specializing in solution focused, short-term counseling of college students. North’s counselors are trained to help students cope with a range of personal life challenges and concerns that may impact personal and academic performance. We use theoretical and research-based approaches such as career counseling, learning-theory, cognitive neurobiology, life-span developmental counseling, multi-cultural counseling, crisis counseling and other generalist approaches found to be effective in helping students achieve success and satisfaction in college.
