Due to the nature of back-and-forth email communication and possible delay in response, appointment times offered via email cannot be guaranteed. The most efficient way to secure an appointment time is to call us during our regular office hours.

What to expect

Your first appointment will begin with a brief online questionnaire, followed by a 20 minute screening with a counselor or psychologist.

They will help assess the nature and urgency of your concern and determine the next appropriate step, such as scheduling a regular counseling session and/or a referral to other campus or community resources.

By phone or in person, we will ask for some identifying information:

  • Name
  • Student ID number
  • Phone number
  • Email address

The support staff at the front desk will work with you to schedule a mutually convenient time to meet.

Student Well-Being support staff and counselors.

All appointment information is confidential. 

It is crucial that you notify Student Well-Being if you are unable to keep an appointment. That time is blocked off for the counselor and they could be seeing other clients.

After your appointment has been scheduled, we will ask you to complete online forms. Completing these forms prior to your session will help your counselor better support you. You will receive an email with instructions on which forms to complete:

  1. Connect to the S&T Wi-Fi or connect and turn on S&T’s VPN or OpenVPN (Virtual Private Network) on your device. Note: campus housing Wi-Fi is not considered S&T Wi-Fi for the purposes of accessing our forms.

  2. Open a web browser and type in the URL bar or click this link.
