Students with a paid medical services fee are eligible to receive up to six individual counseling appointments per fall and spring semester and three counseling appointments each summer semester.
A counseling appointment is defined as: an intake session, an individual therapy session, a crisis day, and a no-show.
Clients utilizing all six of their counseling appointments in a semester are eligible for crisis services and may receive the allotted amount of sessions next semester.
Students work with their counselors to develop a treatment plan to meet their therapeutic goals and decide on the frequency of their six appointments.
Students in individual counseling may also utilize couples/family and group counseling as a supplemental resource, depending on availability.
If students request to be seen more than six times per semester, Counseling Services can help provide community referrals.
