Getting Started at CAPS

To initiate services, please come to CAPS on the third floor of the Olin Health Center (463 E Circle Drive) and check-in at the desk. CAPS uses a same-day screening appointment system (rather than scheduled appointments) for your initial visit. You will complete some paperwork and a brief survey and when 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.

You will have a face-to-face interview with a counselor for about 30 minutes, where they 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.
