Students often experience social, personal, and family concerns while attending college. When such concerns or other barriers to academic success arise, students may turn to one of our professionally trained counselors for help in regaining perspective and purpose. Through individual, confidential meetings, a Counselor can help you explore, understand, and deal with your unique personal issues and help you balance your personal, career, and educational goals.
Counseling at SUNY Broome is a short-term process and is not intended to provide or supplant psychological or psychiatric therapy of any kind. All of our services are FREE for eligible students- eligibility requires students to be currently registered for classes at SUNY Broome.
Students are typically scheduled for 45 to 50 minute appointments on the hour, usually once a week. The number of visits is determined by the scope of the student need, as well as the ability and availability of the staff. In situations where additional services may be advisable, staff will make referrals to off-campus resources.
Personal Counselors offer individual, group and crisis counseling to SUNY Broome Students.
