At the first appointment, referred to as an Intake Appointment, students are asked to complete two forms. During the initial contact at the SCC, the counselor works with the client to clarify and assess concerns and determine the options available. The mission of the SCC is to provide time-effective assistance with problems in living that interfere with students' academic success. When more intensive or specialized service is required to meet a client's needs, the counselor will discuss with the client if extended care can be managed within this agency or if referral alternatives within the community would be more appropriate.
By the end of the initial assessment clients may expect to gain at least three things: 1) some idea of the goals she or he and the counselor believe reasonable to work toward; 2) a general plan for getting to that goal; and 3) some idea of the length of time that may be needed to work toward your goal.
