on the first floor of the AAB Building.

nation’s Armed Forces as part of our student body. The Counseling Office hopes to support veterans in
their transition to civilian life by maintaining an “Open Door” policy to current students.

psychological concerns, special needs resulting from combat exposure, family/relationship difficulties,
or physical disabilities that may benefit from accommodation.

To feel comfortable in talking to a counselor, you must feel secure that your personal information will
not be shared with others. Generally, unless you provide the Counseling Office with verbal or written
authorization your information will not be released to others. There are a few exceptions to this policy,
however, which include:
- When a counselor believes you are an imminent danger to hurt yourself
- When a counselor believes you are an imminent danger to hurt others
- When a counselor believes that a minor or debilitated adult is being subjected to abuse or neglect
