Psychological Counseling

Up to three sessions of confidential, off-campus psychological counseling are available at no charge to all students (dental, dental hygiene and graduate) to provide adjustment counseling, brief psychotherapy and triage. Students must be referred for psychological services by the Office of Student Affairs and Student Diversity. 

All student contacts will be confidential as prescribed by state law. The Associate Dean for Student Affairs and Student Diversity or the Director of Student Affairs may approve payment for a limited number of additional sessions if recommended by the consulting practitioner, the Student Promotions Committee or the Faculty-Student Review Committee. 

If students present with difficulties requiring longer treatment, the Associate Dean for Student Affairs and Student Diversity or the Director of Student Affairs will be notified by the consulting practitioner and the student may be referred outside this structure for consultation at his or her own expense. Several of the consulting practitioners also accept the student insurance program should extended counseling be required.
