Crisis Counseling by trained professionals is offered for registered students at Clover Park Technical College. Counseling is voluntary and students are asked to fill out a consent for services form and an intake form. Information shared with the counselors is kept confidential and does not become part of the students’ academic file. There is a limit of three counseling sessions, after which students will be given to referrals to area counseling agencies and practices, if further counseling is needed.
The counselors also have resources available to refer students for assistance with life circumstances that might be hindering their academic performance. For more information, or to make an appointment, contact the Advising and Counseling Center at 253-589-5548.
