University Counseling Center

Counseling Services

UW students may receive assistance with problems that interfere with academic progress, daily living, adjustment to university life, or relationship issues through group, individual, or couples counseling; crisis intervention services; or brief problem solving sessions. Most individual counseling is short-term and time-effective; most students get their needs meet with four or fewer sessions. After hours emergencies (risk to self and/or others) are handled by contacting the counselor on call at 766-8989. In case of emergency, call 911.

UCC collaborates closely with the STOP Program in the Dean of Students Office by providing counseling support to students who are victims of sexual violence as well as collaborative programming regarding prevention of sexual violence and membership with the STOP campus coalition.

UCC Professional Staff are trained in helping students cope more effectively with the stresses that interfere with their academic progress. The counseling staff consists of licensed psychologists and counselors, as well as doctoral and masters level students who are completing their training in counseling and psychology.

WHO IS ELIGIBLE
UW students are eligible for free services through our clinic, regardless of age, ethnicity, gender, ability, race, religion, sexual orientation, veteran status, political belief or progress toward academic degree. UCC is a Safe Zone for all students seeking services.

FEES
University Counseling Center services are free to UW students.

CONFIDENTIALITY
Here at UCC, protecting your privacy is of utmost importance to us. UCC maintains confidentiality for all of its clients. Counseling records are separate from academic and student health records and cannot be accessed by faculty, non-UCC staff, or parents without your written consent. There are exceptions to the limits of confidentiality and these exceptions are:

     • When a counselor believes you are an imminent danger to yourself and/or others.

     • When a counselor learns of abuse to a child or vulnerable adult.

     • When disclosure is made necessary by legal proceedings.

     • If you are a minor, we need your parent's or guardian's permission to receive counseling at UCC. 

UCC Clients may be asked to sign a release of information form so that UCC staff may speak with other providers, support services or important people in the client's life either on or off campus. While signing such a release is absolutely voluntary, in certain situations, UCC staff may be unable to work with the student in an ethical and effective manner without such permission to coordinate care.

Some examples when a Release of Information may be requested:

  • The client has a serious, persistent mental illness or substance use disorder
  • The client has current or recent past safety concerns
  • The client is seeking referral for psychotropic medication
  • The client has significant academic concerns or other support needs

If you have any concerns or questions regarding confidentiality, please discuss them with your counselor.
