How to Schedule an Appointment

SCU students may schedule a counseling appointment in two ways:

  1. Call CAPS at (408)554-4172 and request to meet with a counselor for an INTAKE appointment.
  2. Come in person to the Cowell Center and ask to schedule an INTAKE appointment.

Special Requests:
We try our best to accomodate special requests (i.e., a certain counselor by name, or a counselor of a certain gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, etc).  Please note that you may be required to wait longer for a special request if those counselors are not immediately open for new clients. 

Preparing for your Intake Appointment
You MUST come 10-15 minutes early to your initial appointment to complete some paperwork. This will include a demographic questionnaire, an informed consent statement, symptom checklist, and a schedule of availability.

Important Documents:
Release of Psychological Records or Information
Consent for Release of Information
