COUNSELING

Sometimes students need a friendly ear to discuss something that is bothering them, or to help them make an important decision. The counseling services at the Student Development Office are designed to offer a wide variety of support and guidance to students in and outside the classroom, ranging from getting organized to dealing with ongoing psychological issues. In a safe and confidential environment, the student guidance counselor provides one-on-one support either through drop-in or scheduled meetings on-campus, or scheduled appointments with one of our off-campus mental health care providers. The counseling support at AUP seeks to empower students to overcome hurdles, manage stress, adapt to a foreign city or country, and achieve academic success.
