Walk-In Clinic

To get started with treatment, please come to the Student Counseling Center (SCC) Walk-In Clinic  hours, Monday through Friday between 12:30 and 3:30 pm. The Front Office staff will ask you some preliminary questions and ask you to complete introductory paperwork on an iPad, which should take about 30 minutes. After completing the paperwork, the next available initial assessment counselor will meet with you for a 20-30 minute appointment.  During high volume periods, you may experience a wait between completion of the paperwork and meeting with the counselor. The initial assessment counselor will evaluate your concerns and discuss with you how your needs can best be addressed. We have a variety of services at the SCC including Manage Your Mood skills-building groups, MindSpa relaxation exercises, group therapy,Therapy Assistance Online, and Brief Individual or Relationship Counseling. The counselor will work with you to find the most helpful fit for your concerns. We also have access to a network of mental health providers both on and off campus, and when appropriate you may be referred to one of these agencies. At the conclusion of your initial session, the counselor will discuss the next steps you can take to start feeling better.

For questions about getting started with services, please call 806-742-3674.
