Urgent Walk-In Services

Our urgent/crisis services are available for those students who are in crisis or have an urgent need to be seen by our counselor on duty. Counselor on Duty is available:

Remainder of Winter Semester (Updated due to COVID-19 Pandemic)

  • Monday-Friday: 9am-4pm

Spring/Summer Semester:

  • Monday-Friday: 10am-4pm

You will need to come to CAPS,  fill out the Welcome to CAPS form and check the box next to "Do you need to be seen today?" and complete the computer intake forms.  If you are experiencing a great deal of stress we'll ask you to complete some brief basic information and then you'll be able to see a counselor as soon as possible.

Examples of reasons to see the "Counselor on Duty" include:

  • If you are not feeling safe
  • If someone close to you has died recently
  • If you have a difficult decision to make in the next 2-3 days
  • If you have been sexually assaulted within the past 72 hours
  • If you have been experiencing a lot of stress for a long time and feel like you really must speak with someone today
