- Location & Hours
We're in this together! And CAPS is still (remotely) here for you! CAPS recognizes how important it is for us to support OSU students -- now more than ever. We commit to doing everything we can to continue supporting you. We’ve been successfully providing students with remote services since March, and we believe this is currently the most helpful way for us to support you (because providing onsite services would require the use of face coverings, which can make it harder for you to express yourself and to connect with your counselor). Please see the menu below for information about our current services.
If you are experiencing an emergency, call 911. If you are in immediate crisis, please do not come to CAPS. Contact CAPS at 541-737-2131, text the Crisis Text Line (text 741-741), or call the Suicide Prevention Lifeline (1-800-273-8255).
The Single Session Clinic (SSC) is reserved for students are enrolled in non-Ecampus classes and are currently in the State of Oregon.
If you need to meet with a counselor for a one-time visit to discuss a current problem or concern, the SSC is for you. SSC counselors can work with you to problem-solve, help you develop skills and/or strategies to address your concern, and will provide a personalized action plan by the end of your visit.
Some SSC counselors can see currently enrolled non-Ecampus students who reside in other states in the continental USA. Email CAPS@oregonstate.edu for more information.
The SSC is not appropriate for students who are in crisis (see Emergencies & Immediate Crisis section) or who need ongoing counseling (see Consultations & Appointments section).
