The Student Counseling Center (SCC) provides crisis services to currently enrolled, degree-seeking USD students. Most students requesting to see a counselor should phone in advance to schedule an intake appointment. If you are not in immediate crisis, you may stop in or call SCC to arrange an appointment, which can usually be scheduled within a week, depending on your schedule. However, if you are in crisis and need to be seen that day, you can walk in during our office hours (8 a.m. - 5 p.m. Monday through Friday). If possible, please call ahead (677-5777) and let us know you are coming. Please tell the receptionist that you are in crisis and need someone as soon as possible.
If it is after hours (after 5 p.m. M-F and weekends) and you are experiencing any of the following and feel like you need professional intervention, the below national hotlines are available for help. If you are at imminent risk, call 911 for off-campus or if you are on campus call 9-911 to connect with an on-call counselor.
