What to expect

If a student is interested in counseling through our office, the student will be forwarded to complete our intake paperwork. 

Once that paperwork is completed, the student will be scheduled with a counselor for a one-hour intake assessment. Every effort is made to try to schedule the student ASAP, but please know that our schedules tend to fill quickly, especially at certain times during the semester. 

After the intake assessment is completed, the student will either be referred for short-term counseling through Counseling Services, referred to on-campus resources and/or referred to off-campus resources. The counselor will assist the student with the referral process. If the student is deemed appropriate to receive counseling through Counseling Services, please know that we offer a limited amount of sessions (typically 10 per academic year) for students.

We look forward to hearing from you!
