Feeling stressed or overwhelmed?
Learning to successfully balance school, work, and family can sometimes be extremely difficult. Please visit the Student Support and Advising Center on either campus or contact the counselors listed below by phone or email. We specialize in short-term support, crisis assistance, referrals, resources, and other ideas to help you.
As the college is operating fully remote - there will be no in person meetings. Please reach out via email to our counselors to schedule a phone or video meeting.

Crisis Intervention 'Text' Hotline
*Text ‘START’ To 741-741 *
Crisis Text Line is a national, 24/7 Crisis-Intervention Hotline. Conversations are conducted via text ONLY. Send a Text if you are experiencing an emotional crisis-anytime, anywhere, and a live trained counselor will receive your text and respond quickly. Crisis counselors only know what ‘texters’ share with them and that information stays confidential. Crisis Text Line does NOT charge ‘texters’. It is a FREE service. (Standard text rate fees apply if your phone carrier charges for text messaging service)
Please note: Crisis Text Line’s crisis counselors are not therapists, and should not replace long term therapy services.
