STUDENT WELLNESS SERVICES VIRTUAL CHECK-IN

The Counseling Center hosts virtual wellness check-ins to help students faster connect to support and resources.  No appointment is necessary for a check-in session.  A check-in is not a counseling/psychotherapy session.  However, a student will be able to schedule a counseling session during the check-in.
