Student Counseling Center

Welcome to the Student Counseling Center

Students face many trials in college and may benefit from addressing those trials with a skilled therapist in counseling.

The Student Counseling Center staff is committed to providing an ethical and professional service to the JBU Community within a biblical worldview.

The JBU Student Counseling Center exists to promote an interpersonally healthy and supportive community by facilitating the development and integrity of students, assessing campus needs, providing educational initiatives and contributing to policy and procedure development.


Most students are served on an individual basis and typically meet weekly for a 45-50 minute session. Some individuals need only a few sessions to work through their personal concerns. Some need more time. The number of sessions is based on the student's need and particular circumstances.

In the event a student's concern requires intensive therapeutic or medical care beyond the scope of the counseling center or health services, our office will assist students with referrals to professional off-campus support services.

Students are not charged for sessions 1-8. Also, there is no fee for group counseling. If a student
continues working in individual counseling after the 8th session, then there is a $10 charge per session. Or, the student can move into group counseling to continue their work. There are no fees associated with group work regardless of the number of sessions a student has had in individual.

Undergraduate fees are as follows:
Sessions 1-8: No charge
Sessions 9+: $10 per session

Graduate and Advance student fees are as follows:
Intake session: No charge
Sessions 2-8: $30 per session
Sessions 9+: $60 per session
