In-Person Drop-In sessions are available and allow students to meet with a counselor in person on a first come, first served basis.  Please note that we are limiting in person visits to one person per counseling session due to covid protocol.  Students with disabilities who require assistance, students who require an interpreter and underage students will be allowed one additional person in the counseling session with them.

In Person Covid Protocols: Masks are required indoors (KN95 or N95 mask only).  Students arriving in person for an In-Person Drop-In Session must first check in at the kiosk on the first floor of the Student Services Center to be added to the In-Person Queue.
