Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) offers free and confidential services to enrolled students.

Services include crisis intervention, brief counseling for individuals, couples, and groups; consultation to students, faculty, staff, friends, and parents; medication management; and assistance with referrals to community resources.

Our goal is to offer our services in an atmosphere that is welcoming and comfortable for all students.

To mitigate the spread of the novel coronavirus and safeguard the health of our students and staff, we are following health guidelines set by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for limiting in-person contact while still providing support for students.
