Accessing Counseling

Counseling and Psychological Services has many services that have been shown to help university students overcome the obstacles in their lives. These include individual counseling, group counseling, couples counseling and stress management and biofeedback. To learn more about these services please visit the CAPS website.

Eligible students complete on-line paperwork, which takes about 30 minutes.  After completing the paperwork, the student can make an appointment through the CAPS receptionist by calling 801-422-3035 or in person in WSC 1500.

In cases of emergency, students can call CAPS Monday through Friday from 8 am to 5 pm Monday through Friday or walk–in between 10 am and 4 pm to see a counselor. A counselor will be available for a consultation session and will respond to urgent needs and refer appropriately for follow-up services.  For afterhours emergencies, please call campus police at 801-422-2222.  Dispatch will assist in contacting an on-call counselor who will provide phone consultation and appropriate referral.
