College is a wonderful place full of possibilities, new beginnings and change, but it can also create unpleasant experiences, pressures and problems. When this happens, we at the Student Development and Counseling Center are here to help our AIU students develop effective coping skills in order to address emotional, interpersonal and academic concerns. Our Counseling Center mainly offers orientation, career guidance and short-term counseling to respective individuals, couples, and group counseling. We also provide referrals to other institutions, where students could benefit from longer term services.
Furthermore, our Counseling Center also provides psychological testing and evaluation in order to assess students’ psychological, emotional and behavioral well-being. These assessments will help students to set goals and develop an appropriate plan for positive change. It is the Counseling Center’s desire to help AIU students to be successful, happy, healthy, and balanced in all areas of their lives.
Information discussed with the Counselor is treated with utmost privacy and confidentiality, unless the student gives permission to share information with others, or in cases of immediate danger of serious harm to the student or someone else. Students under 18 have different confidentiality restrictions.
