Want to talk to a counselor?

We talk with students in crisis, urgent, and routine situations.  The best method for connecting with a counselor depends on your situation.

Crisis--
If you find yourself in a life threatening or life altering crisis situation and you urgently need to speak to a counselor, you may come to the Student Counseling Service in B103 of Cain Hall.   This service is available anytime during business hours Monday through Friday; however, we do ask that students present themselves before 4:00 p.m. so that we can devote a full hour to discussion of their issues before we close.  No appointment is needed for crisis counseling.  Information, support, and crisis intervention are available after business hours through HelpLine at 979-845-2700 (V/TTY).


Urgent--
If you urgently need to talk to a counselor, but are not in crisis, please complete the registration form (click the link at the bottom of this page) and call 979-845-4427 to speak to a staff member who will try to arrange for you to meet with a counselor as soon as possible.  Have your class and work schedules available as these openings become possible when there are appointment cancellations and vary throughout the day and week.


Routine--
Students who are not in crisis or an urgent situation are encouraged to make an appointment through our online registration process. This is done by clicking the registration link at the bottom of the page and completing the form.  At the end of the registration process, students are able to make an appointment to speak with a counselor.  Routine appointments may take up to 10 business days to be scheduled.  At extremely busy times of the semester, time-to-appointment may be 15 days.

If you have any problems with the registration process, please call us at 979-845-4427 or email us at scs@tamu.edu.
