The Student Counseling Service (SCS) is located at 5737 S. University Avenue, and is open from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday. For an evaluation, outside referral, or assignment to a therapist, call 702-9800 to schedule an appointment. Ordinarily, students are scheduled for an intake evaluation within a few days. For study skills consultation and evaluation, call 702-9800. Emergency cases are handled immediately. There is no need to make an appointment in a crisis, though it is helpful to call first if possible.
An SCS staff member is on call every week night and throughout the weekend for emergency consultation and evaluation. The SCS Staff Member-on-call can be reached by calling the University Telepage (702-3625) and asking to speak to the SCS Staff Member-on-call. All aspects of care through this service (including the fact that there has been a visit) are confidential, and information will not be released to anyone without the specific written consent of the student. The number of sessions is determined on an individual basis.
