About the University Counseling Center

Students come to the University Counseling Center (UCC) for a variety of reasons. Some are looking for help in 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, negotiating, or 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.

UCC services available to currently enrolled graduate and undergraduate students include:

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