Appointments

Initial Appointments

Student seeking services meet with a staff person in Student Counseling for an initial consultation. During this time we will talk with you about your concerns and make recommendations for services that may be helpful. Recommendations may include ongoing services through SCS or referral to a community provider.

If you would like to make an appointment for an initial consultation, please contact Student Counseling at scs@upstate.edu or 464-3120, ext. 8. We strongly recommend that you call or email in advance for an appointment, as we are not able to accommodate walk-in sessions. Please note that intake consultation times are pre-reserved in staff calendars but that scheduling is more flexible if you return for ongoing services.

Voicemail or email left after business hours or over the weekends will be returned on the next business day. Most appointments occur within 5 to 7 school days of the initial call; however, at high-volume times of the year this time may be extended.

Please Note: No outside party can make an appointment for a student. All appointments must be set up by the person seeking services. If you are concerned about a friend or fellow student, you may set up a consultation appointment to talk about your concerns.

Ongoing Services

If counseling services are recommended after the initial consultation, all appointments for Services are scheduled between you and your counselor.
