The First Step is Up to You
Appointments may be made by calling the appointment line at 203.857.6870 or by coming in-person to the Counseling Office located on the East campus in room E104 .
Appointments will be scheduled as soon after the initial request as possible, depending on the urgency of the situation and staff availability.
In most cases, we can offer appointments within a week of the initial request, although it may be longer during periods of high demand (midterms to finals). If appropriate, a student may be referred to other services in his or her community, after initial evaluation.
Whether you are an incoming freshman or a returning student, you may find some of these services helpful to you during your time at NCC. There are many opportunities for emotional growth here, because not everyone makes it through college without experiencing some challenges along the way.
Students may experience difficulty juggling the demands of coursework with the challenges that arise in their personal lives. To assist students with achieving their academic goals, mental health counseling services are offered for Norwalk Community College students.
