Social Distancing to Reduce the Spread of Covid-19

In conjunction with UCF’s efforts to implement social distancing and help reduce the spread of the Coronavirus, CAPS is not seeing students in-person, but will give students the option to use phone or video-conferencing for their sessions. Videoconferencing needs a discussion with a therapist and a consent form signed prior to session (see Forms link on home page side panel ).  CAPS is waiving all no show fees for counseling appointments starting on 3/12/2020 and until further notice.
