Services & Fees

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.

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.

Undergraduate students are not charged for sessions 1-8 per academic year (August - May). 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 Online Undergraduate student fees are as follows:
Intake session: No charge
Sessions 2-8: $40 per session
Sessions 9+: Standard rate
