CAPS Summer Operating Hours

(*4:00-5:00pm services are by appointment only)
Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) is the only free-of-charge campus agency designated to provide comprehensive psychological services to university-enrolled students. We seek to strengthen student learning by minimizing interruption of the learning caused by mental health concerns, assisting with the academic skills needed to successfully matriculate through the university. In addition, we offer crisis intervention, and counseling, presentation services, professional consultation, and graduate training. Our staff is comprised of licensed (or license-eligible) psychologists and mental health counselors, and graduate interns who provide a confidential environment in which you may explore and resolve issues of concern.
We offer services in an atmosphere that is welcoming and comfortable for all students regardless of race, gender, ethnic background, religion, age, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, citizenship, or physical status.
