CAPS Fall Hours

Counseling Services uses a walk-in system (rather than scheduled appointments) for your initial visit.

Walk-in hours

  • Monday – Thursday:  10:00 am – 4:30 pm
  • Friday: 10:00 am – 3:30 pm

Students who are in a crisis or extreme distress are usually given first priority and may walk in during open business hours as listed below.  

Business Hours

  • Monday – Thursday: 8:00 am – 6:00 pm
  • Friday: 8:00 am - 5:00 pm


To initiate services, please come to CAPS on the third floor of Olin Health Center (463 E Circle Drive) and check in at the desk.  You will be asked to complete some paperwork and a brief survey. After paperwork is completed, the typical wait for a counselor is about 15-60 minutes, depending on the number of students waiting. The total time to expect for your initial visit, including paperwork and waiting time, is approximately 90 minutes to 2 hours.

After completing your paperwork, you will have a face-to-face interview with a counselor for about 30 minutes. During this interview, the counselor will gather pertinent information to be reviewed by a team of clinicians to determine whether CAPS or another resource is the most appropriate option for you.

As resources permit, additional services (such as individual or group counseling) and/or referrals to outside resources may be provided. Most continuing counseling services are available on an appointment basis.
