The High Point University Office of Counseling Services strives to provide assistance to students who may experience emotional, behavioral, and/or psychological problems during the transition into, or during, college life. As this is a time for change and growth, we recognize that it brings with it exploration of your ability to manage stress, build relationships, balance work and play, and learn more about the person you are becoming.
High Point University students (who are currently enrolled in courses), faculty and staff may receive counseling services, and there is no cost.
Counseling Services staff members are located on campus on the 3rd Floor of the Slane Center. Office hours are from 8:30am – 5:00pm, Monday – Friday.

Our goal is to see students in a reasonable time period. We make every effort to schedule appointments that work with your class schedule. We ask that you try to schedule an appointment as early as possible if you have concerns. As the nature of counseling must address emergency/crisis situations first, we encourage you not to wait to call until you feel you are in a crisis. If you are experiencing considerable distress at the time of your call, please make this known to the staff immediately.
You may schedule an appointment in one of several ways.
PLEASE NOTE: If you are having a mental health emergency, please do not email us or leave a voicemail and wait for a returned call. We prefer that you receive help immediately. In the case of emergency, please follow the instructions listed on our Crisis Situations / Emergencies page.
Are you unsure if counseling is right for you? Are you confused about the emotions you are experiencing? Do you wonder if there are other students experiencing what you are experiencing?
We encourage you to visit ULifeline, an anonymous, confidential, online resource center, where college students can be comfortable searching for the information they need and want regarding emotional health. Complete the anonymous Self-Evaluator to learn if a treatable mental health problem is affecting you or a friend. The tool will guide you toward best next-steps to prioritize your mental health.
