Student Counseling Services

Services Overview

Services Overview

UNA Student Counseling Services are located at 555 Oakview Circle, the white house behind Kilby School. Counselors are available for assessment of needs/problems, crisis intervention, referrals, and short-term counseling with students. The goal is to help students develop coping skills for problems that may be threatening their health, well-being, and/or academic performance.  Participation is confidential, voluntary, and at no charge for students who are actively enrolled in classes and have paid the Student Health Fee for the semester during which they seek assistance.

Counseling staff are also available for interviews, and to present to classes, organizations, and Residence Hall groups on a variety of topics.  Arrangements are made by calling 256-765-5215. 

Faculty, staff or parents, who are concerned about a student may call for consultation with a Counselor or to arrange a referral appointment. Students should call 256-765-5215 for an appointment or further information.

Confidentiality

All counseling records are maintained in strict compliance with laws and guidelines related to confidentiality. Release of information requires your written authorization, except as required by law.

Accessibility

If you will have difficulty accessing our building, please notify the receptionist when you call, and a Counselor will make arrangements to meet you in an alternate private office in the Guillot University Center.
