Schedule an Appointment

Counseling Appointments:
*Please email Alyssa with your Monday thru Friday availability and any counselor preferences at counselingcenter@stolaf.edu or call 507-786-3062 to schedule an appointment*

When contacting us to schedule an appointment, please know that providing as much availability as possible will help to insure you meet with a counselor as quickly as possible.  Please be aware because of the high demand for services, during peak times there is often at least a two or three week wait for a counseling appointment.  The wait for a  nutritionist appointment is usually one to two months.

*Emails and phone messages are reviewed during regular office hours (Monday thru Friday 8:00 a.m. to noon and 1:00 to 5:00 p.m., excluding  holidays and breaks)*


Crisis appointments:

Are available on a limited basis for students in need — unable to stop crying — thoughts of hurting yourself — have not eaten in a few days (not due to illness) — have not slept in a few days (not due to illness) — unable to go to classes (not due to illness) — recent significant loss.  Please call our office to request a crisis appointment.


If you have to cancel an appointment:

Please contact us as soon as possible. We request a 24 hour notice of cancellation in order to best use that time to help other students that may come in, and a 24 hour notice gives time for other students to schedule an appointment in that time.

Missed appointments with a counselor: (no show or cancellation with less than 24 hour notice):

If you miss a scheduled appointment with a counselor, please contact us to let us know the reason. We understand that there are unforeseen circumstances, but ask for at least 24 hours notice of  cancellation.  We reserve the right to deny services to any student who has missed three or more counseling appointment during the course of the academic year.

Missed appointments with our dietitian: (no show or cancellation with less than 24 hour notice):

If you miss a scheduled appointment with the dietitian, you are responsible for notifying us of the reason and confirming future appointments. We reserve the right to deny services to any student who has missed two or more nutrition appointment during the course of the academic year.

Please note:  We realize that sometimes circumstances change or emergencies arise and necessitate changing appointment times. We would greatly appreciate hearing from you at least 24 hours in advance if you need to reschedule, as other students will likely be waiting for available appointment times.
