Mission Statement: Garden City Community College exists to produce positive contributors to the economic and social well-being of society.


Welcome to the online home of the department of counseling and advising. We offer wide variety of services to help you with your college experience. For many students at this college, we provide academic advising. We can help students to decide which courses they need, which degree to work towards, and which major would best help them to meet their goals. We can also provide advice and testing to help students determine the right career options for them. We also have three trained mental health experts on staff to help students who are suffering from mental issues such as stress, depression, or anxiety.
