ELIGIBILITY FOR SERVICES
a. Non-matriculated students – typically these would be 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. Eligibility for CHWS services is withdrawn at the time a student withdraws from courses.
c. Puget Sound employees using the tuition-remission benefit.
d. Family members, domestic partners and dependents of students. A listing of medical and mental health practitioners and local medical clinics is available to help students arrange care for their families and dependents.
e. Counseling interns and practicum students serving in CHWS are not eligible to receive counseling services during their appointment in CHWS because of the dual role complications that would entail.
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 CHWS. This decision is to be made by the Director of CHWS 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 CHWS 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 CHWS and may include:
