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.

Our office provides counseling services during the fall and spring semesters. 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 needs 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.
