Schedule an Appointment

Note: Many of our services have changed during the COVID-19 pandemic.  Please see our home page for updates.

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 that, 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 psychiatrist or nutritionist appointment is usually one to four months.

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.

Let’s Talk is a program that provides easy access to 10-15 minute informal confidential consultations with counselors from the St. Olaf Counseling Center—Boe House.  Appointments are first come, first-served.  The counselor will listen closely to your concerns and provide support, perspective, and suggestions for resources.  When & Where:  1:30-2:30 PM, Monday thru Friday – Boe Chapel–Lower Level, Room 11.
