Hours & After Hours

Counseling Services’ Hours of Operation

Student resting on campusGenerally, the Student Counseling Center is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM.  Clients are seen from 9AM to 4PM.  The center is closed whenever the University is in recess.  Appointments are recommended for all counseling sessions to be sure a counselor is available. 
Counseling appointments are made in one-hour increments.  The actual length of time for a counseling appointment is 45 minutes.  This allows the counselor time for documentation of the previous appointment, and for centering before the next appointment.
