Individual Counseling Guidelines

Individual therapy services are typically brief in nature, and students will be evaluated to determine if their concerns can be addressed through brief therapy. For students who are deemed appropriate for our services, the Student Counseling Center allows a maximum of 6 individual sessions per semester- with a maximum of 12 sessions per academic year- (Summer I and II are considered one semester). Exceptions to this policy will be made at the discretion of the Director of Clinical Services. Referrals to other agencies/practitioners may be made for concerns that require longer-term care. These referrals may be made following an intake session, upon completion of short-term services at the SCC, or anytime during the course of treatment.
