Psychiatric Services

The University Counseling Center (UCC) has a board-certified consulting psychiatrist who is available to see students on an appointment basis. Currently, the psychiatrist is scheduled to be at the UCC every Friday and every other Wednesday. Psychiatric services are available for those students who may benefit from medication or a psychiatric evaluation in addition to counseling. Students may be referred to psychiatric services by a member of the UCC staff. Students who wish to maintain psychiatric services or other medical services with other physicians are encouraged to convey an accurate medical history and coordinate services with other health professionals with their counselor. During the summer sessions and school breaks, the services of the UCC consulting psychiatrist may be obtained through the psychiatrist's private practice at the student's expense. UCC counselors will also provide assistance in finding appropriate psychiatric services during summer sessions and school breaks upon request.
