Student Counseling Services
College life puts a number of demands on students that can become quite stressful: academic difficulties, relationships, depression, anxiety, substance abuse, and other issues can be overwhelming. Student Counseling services has a licensed, clinical social worker who is available to assist students in addressing any problems, in a confidential manner. With experience as a disability services coordinator, he can aid students in obtaining academic accommodations.
Students may seek counseling services either on or off campus. Students may receive up to four counseling sessions with a Master's level therapist free of charge; students seeking the services of a psychiatrist or psychologist in that office are at their own expense. Professional confidentiality will be maintained under the laws of the State of Indiana. Counseling information is considered confidential and will not be shared without the student's written permission.
Holy Cross College recognizes that many students with diagnosed disabilities, such as physical or learning disabilities, or attention disorders, may need academic accommodations in order to increase the likelihood of academic success. To obtain accommodations, students must specify the kinds of accommodations they are requesting and provide documentation to verify disabilities and their severities. If submitting a prior evaluation, full documentation completed within the past three years is required. This material will be kept confidential and will only be utilized in determining students' eligibility for services and the level of services required.
