UCI Orientation


Counseling Center

The Counseling Center is the primary agency for mental health counseling for UCI undergraduate and graduate students. We strive to assist students with their academic success by facilitating optimal mental health and personal growth. The Center’s short-term services are available and free of charge to currently registered students. Students requiring long term or more extensive services are referred to appropriate community providers.

If you are concerned about your child's mental health and mental well-being you can call our office and ask to consult with our urgent care therapist. Please note that due to privacy and confidentiality laws, we are not able to disclose whether or not your child has had contact with our office without written authorization. However, we will do what we can to provide information and resources to help guide parents in providing support to their child.
