Making a Referral

There are several ways to refer a student to the Counseling Center.

  1. Give the student the Counseling Center phone numbers, 972-860-4830 or 972-860-4339.
    The student can call from your office or from home. No appointments can be made for the student by a third party without the student directly speaking to an assistant or to a counselor and asking for an appointment.

  2. Walk the student to the Counseling Center to help them make an appointment for counseling in the Student Services Center, Bldg. S, Room S113.
    If the student is in crisis, please convey this to the front staff. Crisis situations take precedence, and a counselor will immediately meet with the student.

  3. Contact a counselor at the Counseling Center.
    If you decide it is important to share information about a student with a counselor, it is best to receive permission from the student beforehand. However, if you do not feel comfortable asking the student for this permission, you may still contact a counselor and share information that is in the best interest of the student’s health and well-being.
