End of Spring Semester - Same-Day Appointments

May 15 – 26
(Mon-Fri only)

The Counseling Center is pleased to offer Same-Day Appointments the last two weeks of Spring Semester.  Same-Day appointments give you the flexibility to speak with a counselor at a time/day that works best for you.

This service is available for enrolled students seeking a brief consultation (not ongoing counseling sessions or travel consultations) with a professional counselor regarding any issue or concern.  These brief sessions can help students get a “sample” of how counseling works and if it’s right for them, or to get a referral to local resources.

Call our main line at 253-535-7206 to schedule a time (appointments available 9-3pm).  We’ll need some basic info to get you scheduled.

How it Works

Swing by AUC 300 or call 253-535-7206 to schedule a Same-Day Appointment.  (Note: the front desk is closed noon-1pm daily for lunch.)

  • Appointments are generally 45 minutes, and available* from 9:00am-3:00pm.
  • Afternoon spots fill quickly.  It is best to contact us early in the day (before 1:30pm preferred) for better availability. 

*Availability of appointments changes daily due to counselor staffing and work schedules.  Students may be asked to contact Lute Telehealth or the Counseling Center Crisis Line (253-535-7075) when availability is limited.

Note: the Counseling Center will be closed mid-day on May 18 and 25 for weekly staff meetings.
