Frequently Asked Questions 

Below are some of the most common questions regarding the counseling services provided by the Office of Student Affairs.

We prefer that students make an appointment for counseling services. However, students without an appointment will be seen within 24-72 hours of initial contact unless it is deemed an emergency situation.

You may email or call a counselor from your campus directly to schedule an appointment. Visit our Student Counseling page to view contact information for our counselors at PCOM, PCOM Georgia and PCOM South Georgia.

After scheduling an intake appointment with a counselor, fill out the consent paperwork 48 hours prior to your initial meeting. Your counselor will email you a link to the paperwork which can be completed, signed and submitted to them online.

Confidentiality is maintained in accordance with all applicable laws and regulations. Faculty, staff or administration will not have any access to student counseling records without written permission from the student.

All counseling services (individual therapy, group therapy, consultations and walk-in appointments) are free to currently enrolled students.

The number of sessions will be based on the individual needs of the student. The counseling approach is generally short-term and problem-focused. This will be discussed and set during the intake evaluation session.

Sessions are typically 45-60 minutes long.
