Counseling Center Emergency Visit
During regular business hours, students experiencing an urgent crisis can request to be seen for an emergency visit at the Counseling Center. Emergency visits are unscheduled same-day appointments in which Counseling Service staff evaluate the student’s current functioning and nature of concerns and help the student problem-solve and determine the next steps. To request an emergency visit, please stop by the Counseling Center reception desk on the main level of the Shoemaker Building. To schedule a non-urgent appointment, also known as an intake appointment, please call the Counseling Center at (301) 314-7651.
