The Counseling Center offers the following services:
The personal concerns of Drexel students vary greatly, and our Counseling Center offers time-limited individual counseling for support. Students initially meet with a therapist for an assessment to discuss their presenting concerns and to determine the type of services which will best meet their needs.

Consultation and Referrals
At times you may wish to talk to a Counseling Center staff member in order to get advice about how to encourage someone you care about to get help, or to ask general questions about other issues that are causing you distress. In those cases you may contact the Counseling Center at 215.895.1415 (University City campus) or 215.762.7625 (Center City campus) and ask to speak with one of our staff members about your concerns. Consultation services are also always available to faculty and staff members who wish to discuss their concerns about a student. In many cases, referrals may be given for off-campus resources.
Online Student Support / Part-Time Student Support
The Counseling Center offers website resources and telephone consultations for online students. Full-time online students who are able to engage in on-site therapy are eligible for free services.
Part-time students are eligible for a one-time consultation with our Case Manager to help identify personal concerns and to find appropriate resources in your area.
