Making a Referral
The counseling process begins by scheduling an appointment:
Students new to UCS are usually scheduled with the first available counselor. This counselor will meet with you in an "initial consultation" to assess your needs and concerns. After your initial interview, if you are eligible for services at UCS, you will be assigned to either a counselor or a counseling group. Individual counseling sessions are limited to eight (8) sessions per semester. There is no limit to group counseling.
Assignments take into account your needs, concerns, and the times you are available for counseling. You will be contacted about your assignment within one week following your initial consultation.
