Counseling Services

College is exciting and stimulating, but it can also be confusing and stressful. Classes, tests, work, family, friends and career decisions place new demands on your skills, time and energy. Counselors can help you to maximize your academic potential and achieve personal success!

Counselors are faculty who have a Master's degree in counseling. We can offer you an objective and confidential ear to help you to explore these academic and personal concerns.

We are available to meet with you to discuss success strategies, study tips, or plans for the future. We can also help you clarify your goals and priorities so you can effectively manage your many responsibilities as a college student. All services are FREE to MCC students!

(Counselors are different from Academic Advisors. Advisors provide information on degree plans and the classes you need to take to earn a degree as well as how to develop enrollment strategies and ways to ensure that your MCC classes will transfer to other institutions.)

Contact the MCC Information Center at 816.604.1000 to make an appointment:

Confidentiality Statement

As a client, all information you share about yourself will be kept confidential. Only with your written permission will information be released to anyone except as required by law. Legal exceptions include the following: clear and imminent danger to you or someone else, reasonable suspicion of child or elder abuse, or a court order.

Counseling records do not become part of student educational records. While MCC counseling faculty may consult with one another, all counseling faculty are ethically and legally bound to also treat that information confidentially.
