Welcome to the Hartnell College Counseling Department. Our mission is to assist you by providing quality academic counseling, career counseling, and personal guidance so that you have all the information you need to pursue and achieve your academic, career, and personal goals.  We strive to provide you with a quality experience with a Counselor to engage in dialogue about your plan and goals for your future.

To our students and community:

We see you, we hear you, we support you. In the wake of the tragic deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and too many others to list, we have seen a nation rise up and express anger, frustration, hurt, and voice a call to action. Our hearts, ears, and minds are open and we are ready to learn. The door is open for our Black students, families, staff, & faculty to tell us how you are affected by this and what we can do to support you at this moment and beyond.


Listen to Counselor Mercedes Quintero talk about her story. She did it and So Can YOU!
