You can complete the counseling via the Department of Education’s website.  It should take about 35 to 45 minutes right from this page by clicking on the appropriate link above. Once you have successfully completed the entrance counseling requirement, you will be required to take a test. After you pass the test, a confirmation will be sent to the email address you provided during registration
