College can be a big step for students and family members alike. We've created this section to provide  information about the transitions students and families face when children leave for college. If your student is having difficulty adjusting to college you can encourage them to schedule an appointment with Counseling Services.  You may find it helpful to have some basic information about the resources available to your student and to direct them to these. It is understandable that you may wish to be involved when your child seeks counseling, but confidentiality does not permit such involvement without the consent of the student. If more information is desired, the student must sign a written release specifically permitting us to communicate with you. While it is not legal or ethical for counselors to provide parents with information that a student reveals in counseling, parents are welcome to call a counselor and provide us with feedback or share concerns about their child.
