Services not provided at the Counseling Center

The Counseling Center strives to provide as many clinical services to our students as possible. However, because some services take tremendous personnel resources, present a conflict of interest, are beyond the scope of our mission, or require specialization, there are some we do not provide, including:

  • Services are available only to currently enrolled undergraduate students. We do not serve:
    • Incoming first year students prior to Orientation (except Summer Bridge students)
    • Seniors who have graduated
    • Alumnae/i
    • Students from other¬†Five College campuses,
    • Students studying away from the College (international or domestic exchange),
    • Green Deans
    • Students returning from time away/leave prior to the beginning of the semester;
  • Clinical services to staff or faculty
  • Long-term counseling
  • Specialty care (EMDR, psychoanalysis, body work, etc.)
  • Intensive substance abuse treatment
  • Intensive outpatient treatment
  • Testing for learning disabilities and/or attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Assessment and documentation for service or emotional support animals
  • Forensic evaluations
  • Neuropsychological evaluations
  • Court ordered treatment, treatment that is the stipulation of probation and mandated treatment
  • Evaluations for attorneys or courts related to difficulties such as alcohol infractions (e.g., driving under the influence) or other domestic matters such as parents seeking custodial authority of a student
  • Services to students who are not medically stable or require intensive medical treatment
  • Mediation for on-campus proceedings

Although we do not provide these services, we will work with students to help them access these resources elsewhere. If you would like assistance in accessing these resources off campus, please contact the Counseling Center and schedule an appointment with our Case Manager.
