Make an Appointment

To make an appointment for an initial consultation, all you have to do is call the University Counseling and Wellness Center at (251) 460-7051. You can also walk into the Center (300 Student Center Circle) to schedule your appointment.

* Our secretary is typically on the phone for several minutes with each student gathering information and scheduling appointments so sometimes she might not be able to pick up immediately. Students should leave a message with their contact information when prompted. Our secretary will call you back as soon as possible to schedule an appointment.

Initial Consultation

If you are interested in accessing the University Counseling and Wellness Center services for the first time, you can discuss your concerns with one of our clinicians during an initial consultation. Our services are free and available to enrolled USA students. We are located at 300 Student Center Circle (right next to the Computer Services Building and very close to the Student Health building).

What To Expect During the Initial Consultation

We estimate that the initial consultation will take approximately 20-30 minutes. The purpose of the initial consultation is to gain a thorough understanding of what brings you to the counseling center, identify your goals, discuss options and develop a plan which may include individual counseling, group counseling, a referral to campus or community resources or self-help resources.
