We have made some changes in the Counseling Center, to try to eliminate wait times
and give better service to students.
The first thing to know is: Walk in hours are Monday - Friday from 8:00-4:30
Students who have never been to the Counseling Center may walk in and will be seen
for a brief check in. In this check in a counselor will meet with you for 15 minutes
or so, to gather the nature of your concerns. You and the counselor will determine
what resources may be helpful and the counselor will facilitate your next steps.
Counselors may recommend a number of resources including group and/or individual counseling
in the Counseling Center or with an off campus provider. Other options for help include
online therapies, support services on campus such as advocates in Health Services,
career counseling in the Career Center or financial advising in Financial Aid, for
If you need assistance after hours call 678-839-6428, press option 2, you will be
connected to the on-call counselor.
The thing that hasn't changed in the Counseling Center is that all services are confidential
and free of charge. #CounselorsCare #UwgCares #UWGSpeaks

Make an appointment at the Counseling Center to explore your experiences and concerns

Mental health is key to your overall health, and brief screenings are the quickest
way to determine if you or someone you care about should connect with a mental health
professional. It's like a checkup from the neck up.
This program is completely anonymous and confidential, and upon completing a brief
questionnaire, your results, recommendations and resources will be made available.
Online counseling allows students to work exactly as they would work on in face-to-face
counseling, but the counseling takes place via online video conferencing.
While the counselor will still be located at the Counseling Center, the client may
be at home or another location miles away from campus. This service was designed specifically
for students taking online courses who may be unable to attend counseling sessions
Diversity isn't limited to any one person or issue. We recognize issues related to
diversity influence students’ personal growth, and it is our goal to help students
grow and flourish in an inclusive environment where diversity is embraced and celebrated.
