Empowering Students Through Counseling

Accredited by the International Association of Counseling Services, Azusa Pacific's University Counseling Center (UCC) exists to empower students to realize their personal and academic potential by promoting psychological, social, and spiritual wellness through Christian counseling and outreach services.

Students visit the University Counseling Center for a variety of reasons. Some seek help coping with the pressures associated with a challenging academic environment or adjustment to college life. Others want to learn how to be more effective in developing and maintaining relationships with others. Counseling can be beneficial for students who are feeling depressed or anxious, as well as those who want to examine their beliefs or explore their current life situation. The UCC offers students the opportunity to look at themselves and their environment and to change the way they think, feel, and behave so that they can make the most of their time at APU.

Services available to currently enrolled graduate and undergraduate students include:

  • Individual counseling
  • Couples counseling
  • Premarital counseling
  • Group counseling
  • Crisis intervention
  • Training and educational workshops

In emergency situations, call 911 first and then contact the Department of Campus Safety at (626) 815-3898.

Azusa Pacific University is a member of the Jed Health Matters Campus Program, which is designed to help colleges and universities promote emotional wellbeing and mental health programming, reduce substance abuse, and prevent suicide among students.
