How to Make An Appointment
To make an appointment you should either call the Office of Counseling and Testing at 235-4145 or come by the office in Donald W. Reynolds Bldg. Room 216. Appointments can not be scheduled through email due to concerns regarding confidentiality.
What to Expect
Students are seen primarily by appointment. Walk-ins are usually seen at the time they come in if a counselor is not with another student. Students in crisis are seen as soon as possible. See emergency procedures for more information.
Before your appointment you will be asked to fill out an intake form. This is just to get some basic information about you. You will also be asked to sign a Limits of Confidentiality form that defines instances where confidentiality must be waived.
Your first appointment will be spent with the counselor helping you get comfortable and gathering information about you and the issues you present. Appointments last approximately 50 minutes.
Sometimes it may be necessary for the counselor to refer a student for more long-term treatment or for medication management. Referral options include the University Health Services, personal physician, or South Arkansas Regional Health Center.
