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. MCC Counselors are faculty members who hold a Master's degree. We are available to meet with you to discuss success strategies, study tips, or plans for the future.

Call 816.604.1000 or stop by one of the counseling centers to schedule an appointment. Services are free for MCC students.

For many, this perceived loss of control, social isolation and unexpected change of plans can be really difficult. The counselors at Metropolitan Community College want you to know that we are a resource that you can use. If you would like to talk with one of us, you can click the “Meet Our Counselors” page for email links or contact us by phone at 816.604.1000.
