Free, confidential, and compassionate assistance to all enrolled UAS students. Counseling Services helps students reduce psychological symptoms, cope with life events and increase resilience.

Counseling services supports the mental well-being of students, fosters student success, and contributes to a safe and welcoming campus community. We are committed to equity and respect for individual and cultural differences.

Students who are enrolled in credit courses for the current semester are eligible.  Additionally, we offer distance (telephonic, video calling, etc.) counseling to students enrolled in one or more university credits. 

We observe confidentiality within UAS Counseling Services and ensure that any information exchanged during the counseling process is used exclusively for the benefit of the student. Counseling records are not kept in student academic files and information is not released to anyone.

Counseling can help students clarify personal issues and emotions, set goals, and improve relationships.
