About the Counseling Center

Comprehensive psychological services are offered to currently enrolled students at the Counseling Center for free.

A culturally diverse staff of licensed psychologists and doctoral trainees provide psychological counseling and psychotherapy, career counseling, testing services, outreach and consultation to the university community.

The College Survival Kit consists of numerous workshops that provide academic performance help, wellness education, and discussion of issues such as cultural diversity.

The Web-based career services SIGI and OCIS are provided for your convenience in addition to personal career counseling with a psychologist.

Counseling Center services are free with the exception of some nominal testing fees. We invite you to explore the Counseling Center website and call or come in to use the many services available.


The Counseling Center is accredited by the International Association of Counseling Centers (IACS).
