ELIGIBILITY FOR SERVICES
a. Students enrolled for continuing education classes through the School of Education.
b. Students not registered or on leave for a semester or an academic year.
c. Students who are full time employees of the university and enrolled using the tuition-remission benefit.
d. Family members, domestic partners and dependents of students. A listing of medical and mental health practitioners and local clinics is available to help students arrange care for their families and dependents.
e. Counseling interns and practicum students serving in Counseling, Health, & Wellness Services are not eligible to receive counseling services during their appointment in Counseling, Health, & Wellness Services because of the dual role complications that would entail. For these students efforts will be made to have counseling services available through a reciprocal relationship with local college and university counseling centers.
f. It may be determined, based on clinical assessment of the nature of presenting concerns and/or inappropriate behaviors, that a student will not be offered treatment in Counseling, Health, & Wellness Services. This decision is to be made by the Director of Counseling, Health, & Wellness Services in consultation with the Assistant Director and any professional staff involved. Any such decision will be documented in the student’s chart. This decision may be reviewed at the initiation of the student at any time. (See related guideline at “Failure to Keep Appointments.”)
g. Alumni or others auditing courses without charge are not eligible for Counseling, Health, & Wellness Services services.
Exceptions to the above may be considered on a case-by-case basis, and will generally be made dependent on staff availability after determining that we have already met the demand for services to currently enrolled students. These exceptions are to be cleared with the Director of Counseling, Health, & Wellness Services and may include:
