  • Counseling services are paid for by your student fees. Students taking 4 credit hours or more are eligible for services within our scope of care.
  • Enrolled students can request services by calling 303-273-3377, online through the “Request Service” button or in person at the front desk on the 2nd floor of the Wellness Center.
  • Your request for an appointment can usually be accommodated within one week.
