Make an AppointmentHow do I get started?
Come to 341 Knight Hall during our WALK-IN HOURS for a brief initial interview session with a counselor.

Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday - 9:00 am - 11:30 am & 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Thursday and Friday - 10:00 am - 11:30 am & 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

What happens when I first arrive?
You will be greeted by our front office staff and asked to fill out some forms. You will then have the opportunity to meet briefly (15-20 minutes) with the walk-in counselor to discuss your situation. At that time, the counselor will provide you with a future appointment at UCC and/or a referral to another agency to assist you with your needs.
This initial appointment is not a counseling appointment. It is an opportunity for the counselor to assess and discuss your needs. The counselor will then assign you to one of the UCC groups or to an individual counselor, or he or she may refer you to an outside resource that may more closely fit your needs.
Can I complete the paperwork before my initial walk-in appointment?
Yes. You may download the initial paperwork, complete it, and then bring it with you to UCC. If you choose to print off the packet to bring in, please be sure to not misplace it as it is confidential information. The packet provides the therapist with additional important information about your concerns. Remember, you must wait to sign the form until you have arrived at the UCC office. You may, of course, simply come to the UCC and complete paperwork when you arrive. [Download the initial paperwork packet here.]
“What if I have a crisis?
Crisis intervention services are also offered during regular clinic hours (8:00am - 5:00pm) for students with urgent problems. Please call or walk-in and inform our receptionist you have an urgent crisis. For after-hours crises, call 766-8989 and ask for the on-call counselor.
If you are experiencing an emergency, call 911.
