Update of Fall Services

In order to provide the quickest access for students, CAPS has shifted all first-time appointments for the remainder of the Fall 2023 semester to a single session same day format. Single Session appointments are set up as a one-time appointment that are structured to give a student a springboard for finding solutions to the challenges they are experiencing in their life now. It is not meant to be a substitute for regular scheduled appointments. Regularly scheduled and on-going services will return at the beginning of the New Year. Single Session services are available every day, M-F 8am-4pm. To access these services come by our office.

Free and fantastic services also remain available through our Student Support App. Should you have any questions do not hesitate to reach out at 785-864-2277 or visit
