Your Success Is Our Mission

Counseling Services

Counseling Services provides counselors to help with academic concerns, as well as to assist with an emergency or a crisis. All members of Counseling Services are experienced professionals. Every discussion is confidential.

Students are assigned a counselor who has expertise in the student's program area. However, students can feel free to contact anyone in the program for academic or personal counseling needs.
