Scheduling for the Fall 2016 semester will begin August 29th, 2016

We offer time-limited counseling, which means that students may be seen for up to 10 sessions per academic year.

There is no charge for this service and can be scheduled on a weekly basis. Sometimes finding the most appropriate help may mean exploring resources other than those provided by the counseling staff. If so, we will offer assistance in referring you to other appropriate services and counseling resources.

Sessions are 45 minutes long. If you find that you will not be able to keep an appointment, please call to cancel at least 24 hours in advance so that the time may be used for someone else. Failure to do so may result in forfeiture of your appointment time.

Prior to your first counseling appointment of each academic year, you will be asked to sign-on to the Patient Portal to complete and submit a Counseling Intake Form.
