HEALTH AND COUNSELING

We strive to provide the best quality of care for our students. There is no higher priority than the health and well-being of our faculty, staff, students and families. Due to growing concerns regarding the spread of the COVID-19 virus, we are temporarily adjusting our services to include a telehealth model and virtual wellness. This model allows our students to have personal and direct access to a provider at their convenience.
