Counseling at UCC
We’re here to provide support when your normal ways of coping or managing problems no longer seems to be working.
The University Counseling Center (UCC) provides an outlet to talk over what is on your mind with an objective person who has professional training in helping people work through their problems. We’ll help you to better manage current situations and learn new skills and ways of looking at situations so that you will be more capable of solving problems on your own.
Number of Sessions
The UCC offers a brief counseling model, working toward a solution to your concerns in as few sessions as possible. To maximize the availability of services for all students, clients may be seen for as many as 12 sessions during the academic school year. Regardless of the counseling form, success in counseling requires your active participation during and between sessions.
Types of Counseling
Many UND students come to the UCC to discuss concerns ranging from social pressures to academic access. Counseling is offered in different forms:
Psychiatric referrals to UND Student Health are also available to discuss issues related to medication.
What to Expect
