Appointments & Fees

Making an Appointment

How to

To schedule an appointment with University Counseling Services (UCS), contact the Bryant Student Health Center (BSHC) at 620.235.4452, or see the receptionists at the BSHC front desk anytime between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. 

Prior to your first appointment, please give advanced thought to your personal and medical history.  Upon arrival for your first appointment, please check-in at the desk before being seated.  You should arrive 15 minutes before your first appointment, as you will need to complete a brief registration form prior to being seen.  Please bring your valid PSU ID card to your appointments.  The front desk attendants will assist you with the check-in process and can direct you to the UCS private waiting room.

If you cannot keep an appointment, please give at least a 24 hour notice.  Students who fail to show up for, or cancel scheduled appointments deny appointments to other students in need.  Therefore, students who do not cancel or reschedule appointments at least 24 hours in advance will be charged a missed appointment fee of $15.  Students with PSU Health Insurance will be responsible for the $15 fee; your insurance will not be billed.
