Drop-In Counseling

Drop-in Counseling is limited to ten minutes and is appropriate for general questions only. Students must check in for a drop-in appointment at the Counseling Services front desk on the third floor of Watson hall. All students are served on a first-come, first-served basis. Drop-in Counseling is not appropriate for transcript evaluation, Student Education Plans or personal counseling, as drop-in Counselors do not have access to your transcript or other student records.
