Counseling Services - Fees, Availability and Languages

Fees

money

All College Mental Health counseling services are provided under your Student Health fee. If you have paid your Student Health fee, or if your fee has been waived, you are entitled to free counseling services. In addition, there is no additional charge for students who seek relationship or parenting counseling. As long as you are registered and enrolled in the current semester, all counseling sessions are free.

 

Cancellation Policy

You must cancel or re-schedule your appointment a minimum of 24 hours before the scheduled appointment.

Policy for Late Cancelation

You will be charged $5 if you cancel within 24 hours of your scheduled appointment or if you fail to keep your appointment. You will not be allowed to schedule another counseling appointment until the charge is paid.

You will forfeit your right to counseling services for the remainder of the semester if you have three (3) late cancelations and/or failures to keep appointments.

 

Counseling Availability

All counseling is intended to be brief, usually limited to six (6) sessions per semester. The number of sessions can change based upon student need, counselor availability, and the professional judgment of the counseling staff. When more extensive counseling is required, a student may be referred to a licensed professional in the community.

Some of our counselors are bilingual and can offer you sessions in languages other than English. At the Student Health Center, counseling is provided in Spanish, Vietnamese and Korean, in addition to English.  At the Office of Counseling and Special Programs, counseling is provided in Spanish and Farsi, in addition to English.
