Appointments may be made at JCA or JCI as needed and as available. Virtual sessions are also available.

Drop-In/Group Sessions:

Drop in hours are open office hours where students can see the counselor without having an appointment. Students can come alone or bring a friend. Drop in hours are on a first come, first serve basis. Students do not need to enroll in counseling services to use drop in hours. Drop in Hours are great if you:
  • want more information about counseling services;
  • have questions about mental health;
  • need to visit the counseling office for class credit;
  • have concerns about a friend and want to talk with someone about it.

Drop In Schedule:

  • Monday: 9am - 10am (SC Room 202)
  • Wednesday: 12pm - 1pm (SC Room 202)
  • Thursday: 12pm - 1pm (JCA Room 107B)

Pop-Up Drop Ins
 will occur throughout the semester in various locations on campus. Look for signs and updates with times and locations.

The COMTREA On-Campus Therapist can meet with any currently enrolled student, up to 6 sessions, to address ongoing problems or concerns. We are dedicated to student success and work with students to navigate barriers to access appropriate treatment and resources. The COMTREA On-Campus Therapist is not able to provide documentation for emotional support animals.
