Counseling Care is a mental health clinic that offers confidential personal counseling to students. Students taking seven or more credit hours per semester on-campus automatically pay the Counseling & Health fee, making them eligible for Counseling & Health Care visits. Students enrolled in less than seven credit hours can opt-in by paying the semester CHC fee.  In addition to personal counseling, our office offers Alcohol and Drug Counseling provided by qualified licensed therapists who have completed all the State of Nebraska requirements to provide court-ordered Drug and Alcohol counseling services. There may be additional fees for those services.
