Student Counseling Center

The Student Counseling Center (SCC) strives to support students in reaching their academic potential by focusing on intellectual, emotional, social and cultural development. The SCC at Pacific University provides a range of services including consultation, crisis services, group therapy, and short-term individual therapy to students whose presenting concerns fall within our scope of practice and would be best served within our center. Enrolled students who have paid the Student Health and Counseling Fee are eligible for services at the SCC. In academic programs where the Student Health and Counseling Fee has been waived, students have the option to utilize the SCC services for a "point of service fee." We make every effort to serve as many students as possible; therefore, we have adopted a short-term therapy treatment model and are unable to provide long-term, comprehensive, or specialty psychological services. For students whose concerns fall outside of our scope of practice, we assist with referrals into the community.
