University Counseling Center

Eligibility for Services

A student must be currently enrolled at Western Illinois University (WIU), taking a minimum of 3 academic credits and working toward a degree. Exceptions may be made only with the approval of the University Counseling Center (UCC) Director.

Faculty and staff taking classes at WIU are considered employees and will be referred to the Employee Assistance Program or other resources for counseling services. WIU employees may receive counseling assistance on an emergency basis followed by a referral to an appropriate provider or resource.

During the summer semester, a student enrolled for the fall semester may receive counseling services without summer enrollment. However, this is dependent upon availability of counseling services during the summer.


Some students' needs go beyond what can be provided for on campus and will be referred to a higher level of care off campus. All decisions about the provision of counseling services to a student will be made solely on the basis of clinical judgment and the availability of necessary resources and are not based on the student's race, color, religion, gender, age, sexual orientation, marital status, national origin, disability, or status as a disabled veteran.

The counseling services offered through the UCC are limited to brief, short term counseling, which typically consists of less than ten counseling sessions per academic year.  The University Counseling Center staff has the right to modify the delivery of counseling services beyond the ten-session guideline after consultation with and approval from the UCC Director.
