Appointments and Drop-In

How to Schedule an Appointment

Registered students at UAS can call the Student Resource Center at 907-796-6000 or toll free 877-465-4827 or email to schedule an appointment. All counseling services start with a 50-minute scheduled or Drop-in/Crisis Care Plan Meeting where you will meet with a counselor to identify and understand your concerns, explore resources that might help, and form an initial plan for services. Students can also attend groups and wellness workshops.

For students residing outside of the state of Alaska, UAS counselors are only able to provide referral services. Students residing outside of the state of Alaska are able to participate in workshops listed on the groups page.

Counselors are providing in-person and telehealth sessions (phone or Zoom).

If you would like to learn more about Counseling Services, this counseling services informational disclosure form is intended to inform you about Counseling Services and about your rights and responsibilities as a student.
