All Lipscomb students that are currently enrolled can come in for a consultation to see if the services we offer meet their clinical needs. Services at the UCC are free. If we do not offer the level of care the student needs, we will support them in finding community resources. However, we cannot guarantee what fees will be associated with any outside services.
One of our top priorities is safeguarding your privacy. If we are contacted, we do not give out any information, or even confirm you are attending counseling, unless you have given us written and verbal authorization to release information. Only certain infrequent situations mandated by law are exceptions- and those are outlined in the informed consent provided by your counselor. Your counseling record is not part of your educational record and is only accessible to counseling center personnel.
Yes and No. We accept walk-ins during regular office hours for students in crisis. If you are having thoughts (or have had thoughts in the past 24 hrs) about harming yourself or someone else then please feel free to walk-in. Otherwise, we ask that you make an appointment and utilize other Lipscomb resources like TimelyCare or the Student Care Coordinators until you are able to be seen.
