Centre for Counseling & Psychological Wellbeing - Counseling Services Accessibility

Services Accessibility

The goal of the Counseling Center is to provide helpful and effective counseling to students. The Counseling Center works collaboratively with students, academic divisions, departments, faculty members, student services, and other pertinent departments of the institution to enhance academic, personal, and career success. Counseling services are available to all full-time enrolled day students.


Counseling services are available to students at no extra fee.

Operation Hours

Generally, the Counseling Center is open Monday through Friday from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Hours are limited during winter break, spring break, and summer sessions.

Operating Procedure

  • • Appointments are recommended to ensure the availability of a counselor. Appointments can be made in person, over the phone, or through email.
  • • The availability of services will vary from summer to summer and from week to week depending on the availability of staff to provide services. Students should email the Director of Counseling Services to determine availability of services.
  • • Walk-ins are welcome, however, counselors may or may not be able to see students depending on their availability and the nature of the visit (i.e. students in crisis). Clients with appointments take precedence over walk-in clients.
  • • Clients with less urgent needs are encouraged to make appointments to ensure that they are seen in a timely manner. Counseling sessions last approximately 50 minutes. This allows time for the documentation of the session and preparation for the next appointment.
