Quick question for a counselor meet with a Virtual Drop-In Counselor.

You may wish to review our FAQ page  or our Video Library first to see if your question already has an answer. If not, please review the following options to connect with a DVC Counselor online (virtual drop-in session or appointment).

DVC Virtual Drop-In Counseling

Our limited virtual drop-in counseling is a 10 minute Live Chat session with a DVC counselor. This option is appropriate for brief, quick questions such as:

  • College policies and deadlines
  • Enrollment steps for new students
  • General questions related to certificates, degrees, programs and transfer information

To Get Started

  • A counselor is available when you see the green “ONLINE” button
  • Click the “Knock On Door” button located on the Contact Card
  • Current students should login with your student ID, prospective students will create an account through the login page
  • Wait for a pop-up window to appear to begin your Live Chat
Please Note

We are experiencing a high volume of students requesting virtual drop-in; “Away” can signal that the drop-in queue has reached maximum.

  • The Chat feature is compatible with Chrome and Firefox only
  • Please find a private location when communicating with the counselor
  • Counselors may close the virtual drop-in early if the student queue has reached its maximum
