NWOSU Counseling Services

NWOSU Counseling Services located on the Alva campus on the second floor of the Fine Arts Building, room 209. Counseling Services offered to the other three NWOSU campuses via HIPPA compliant tele-video services. Mental health and substance abuse records are separate from academic records. Without a valid client written consent; counseling records will not be disclosed with the exceptions of Federal and State Regulations regarding confidentiality.

The first appointment is a brief screening to discuss counseling needs to determine the appropriate level of therapeutic care. There is no cost for counseling services at NWOSU to currently enrolled students. Therefore, the demand for services is high.  In efforts to meet all students’ needs, we offer short-term counseling services to all students averaging from 4 to 6 sessions per semester.  Following the initial screening, recommendations will be made for the most beneficial route to help you with your concerns. Suggestions can include short term counseling on campus, referral to other campus resources, or referral to long term counseling off-campus community mental health agencies.

Consultation services about concerns for a Northwestern student are at no cost to currently enrolled students, faculty, and staff.  Consultation services are an opportunity to discuss with a mental health clinician concerns about self or another individual’s (non-emergency) behavior. Consultation services can offer suggestions and assistance regarding appropriate steps of action if needed for efforts to assist an individual with personal, career, or social concerns.
