Can I walk into the Student Counseling Center without an appointment?

Do I need to fill out paperwork prior to my first appointment?
Yes. When you request an initial appointment online, you will fill out some basic screening paperwork that allows the Student Counseling Center to match you with the counselor who best meets your present needs. After your request is submitted, your appointment will be made at a time convenient for your class schedule.

Is the Student Counseling Center offering any groups this fall?
As with most semesters, we are planning to offer group counseling sessions if the demand is sufficiently high.  This year, these will mostly be conducted online, but some smaller groups may be held in person and appropriately physically distanced.
