Student Counseling Center

Our professional counselors are here to help you ensure you get the most from your college career.

Welcome to the Student Counseling Center

The Student Counseling Center provides short-term mental health counseling to help enrolled students identify barriers to success, build personal awareness, and develop life skills so they might fully engage in and benefit from the world’s best undergraduate education in engineering, mathematics, and science.

Clinical staff are available for therapy by appointment only. The scope of care encompasses mild to moderate symptoms and issues which can be addressed in 6 sessions or less. The SCC recognizes that sometimes student needs are beyond the scope of our practice. Concerns that are best addressed through a referral to an off-campus provider include: (1) acute, severe, or chronic mental health concerns needing inpatient treatment and/or more than 6 sessions; (2) chronic suicidality, recent and/or multiple suicide attempts and/or chronic self-injury; (3) active symptoms of psychosis.

Accessing Care

Walk-in services are available. Students can access non-emergent care by calling the main SCC number (812-877-8537), or by emailing us at, or by visiting the Student Counseling Center during walk-in hours (Monday -Friday 3rd and 8th hour). Staff will respond to messages Monday-Friday 8 AM-5 PM.​​​​​​
