• Wearing a mask is optional for students who meet with a counselor in person. 
    • We offer virtual appointments via a secure version of Zoom upon request.
    • An “Initial Consultation” is a student’s first appointment at Counseling Services during the current academic year.
    • During 2021-2022, 93% of students who requested an Initial Consultation met with a counselor within 1 to 5 business days.
    • The Initial Consultation requires 45 minutes: 15 minutes for the student to complete several forms and for the counselor to review them, 30 minutes for student and counselor to meet. Subsequent appointments are 45 minutes.
