Counseling Services

Counseling provides services to enable students to address behavioral and emotional concerns so they are able to take full advantage of the academic and social opportunities of their college experience.

The Counseling Center staff offers crisis intervention and short-term counseling. If a student needs intensive counseling or medication, they will be referred to off-campus resources.

To schedule an appointment:

Call or stop by the Counseling Center.


Counseling services abide by state laws and professional ethical standards in maintaining confidentiality.
These standards prevent us from releasing information to anyone without the written consent of the student. Disclosure of information may be made if, in the professional judgment of the counselor, the student presents a danger to themselves or others or if the counselor has reasonable belief of abuse or neglect of a child or vulnerable adult.
