Please note that the Counseling Center is running on remote operations. Services may be limited at this time.
Access Points: If you need to contact Counseling, please email Counseling.Central@seattlecolleges.edu. This email is regularly monitored Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Please note that it may take up to 72 business hours for us to respond. Email is not a secure nor confidential form of communication, so please be mindful of the messages you send.
Services Offered*: During spring quarter, counselors are limited in regards to what services we are available to provide remotely. At this time, we will continue to assist students on Academic Probation and provide limited services to students who are program ready.
Students who are not program ready yet or who are interested in professional/technical programs should contact the Advising Office.
We will not be holding personal counseling sessions. We are not equipped to provide personal counseling services during remote operations at this time, but we are looking at ways to do so. In the meantime, we want to highlight the off-campus resources and support lines available for students in our Community Resources page.
In addition, counselors have created a document for students that provides mental well-being information resources for those experiencing COVID-19 related stress.
For students in crisis: If you are experiencing an emergency, please contact 911 or the 24-hour crisis hotline, Crisis Connections, at 1.866.427.4747.
*We will update what services we may be able to provide as soon as we can. Thank you for your patience.
As some students experience longer term or specialized or urgent resource needs, the Seattle Central counselors may help you find a community resource which is appropriate for your needs. Often students can locate resources directly.
