Free Counseling to All Enrolled ECU Students
The Counseling Center is dedicated to helping students resolve personal difficulties which may interfere with their personal and academic functioning. It is the Counseling Center's mission to maximize students' problem-solving and decision-making capabilities through acquiring skills, attitudes, and knowledge that enable them to succeed in attaining their educational and personal goals. Resources include developmental, remedial and preventive services.
To make an appointment for counseling please call 580-559-5299 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
There is no waiting list for counseling and students can usually be seen during the same week that they call.
Meeting and talking with a counselor is confidential. In fact, no one knows you come to the counseling center unless you volunteer that information. Visits to the counseling center will not show up on your transcript and will not affect your financial aid. Counseling records are kept for treatment purposes and are not part of other University records. Therefore, your professor, friends, and family will not know that you went to counseling or what you talked to the counselor about.
Exceptions to this policy include:
- Imminent danger to self
- Imminent danger to others
- Child/dependent abuse
- Elderly abuse
- Court order
- When required by law
- When the client signs a release allowing the counselor to speak to a specific person about you or your case
Crisis intervention is immediate. During counseling center hours, call 580-559-5714 or go immediately to Room 137, Memorial Student Union Building. If the crisis is on the weekend, a holiday, or after the counseling center's regularly scheduled hours, call the ECU Police Department at 580-559-5555.
