Counseling approaches are tailored to fit the student's individual needs. Generally, counseling tends to be short-term focused on stabilization and assisting students to return to their normal functioning. Sometimes students presenting with more complex issues require longer-term therapy. Treatment options including referrals are made on a case-by-case basis and take into account such variables as the nature of the specific issues, student's desire for change, and available resources at the Counseling Center.
Workshops are conducted through the year addressing time management, study skills, math skills, etc. One on one weekly meetings can also be scheduled to help keep you on track with withdrawal information, adding/dropping courses, information on academic policies and procedures, etc.
