Student Counseling Center
Meeting the Mental Health Needs of Texas Tech Students
As the primary student mental health clinic on campus, the Student Counseling Center provides a safe environment for students to explore issues of concern, resolve psychological distress, and maximize their potential at Texas Tech University. We seek to offer the highest standard of care as we provide a wide range of different services for students. Check out the rest of our website to find out how we can help you!

Updates About Our Services:
September 17, 2018: The Student Counseling Center has a two-week wait for individual and couples counseling services following triage/intake. Please consider utilizing the Family Therapy Clinic, Human Sciences 165, 806.742.3074 to start treatment sooner.
Effective 10/1/17, a Missed Appointment Fee will be applied to clients' Student Business Services accounts following no-showed individual or couples counseling appointments. In order to avoid this charge, clients must contact the Student Counseling Center prior to the scheduled appointment times to cancel or reschedule appointments which they cannot keep. Appointment text reminders are a courtesy and may not be sent for every appointment. SCC clients are responsible for knowing their appointment times, regardless of whether they receive text reminders.
