Key Programs and Services

Full-time students enrolled in degree programs are eligible for the full range of counseling services. Part-time or non-matriculating students (including those on dissertation status, on leave of absence, or enrolled in special programs) are eligible for consultation, evaluation, and referral when appropriate. We are unable to provide evaluations for or letters prescribing Emotional Support Animals, as this specialized assessment is beyond the department's scope of practice.

Students may schedule an appointment by visiting the Counseling Services office or by calling 617–552–3310. The office is open Monday through Friday (except holidays) from 8:45 a.m.–4:45 p.m.
