Q: Who can use the Counseling Center?

A: Any currently enrolled student, faculty, or staff member at UNO.

Q: How do I know if I need counseling?

A: Questions, choices, concerns and changes are all a normal part of life. Sometimes we can work through them on our own or with the help of friends and family. Sometimes, they can feel too private, overwhelming or complicated to share with someone we know. The people who provide us support can also be part of what’s bothering you. When this is case, talking to a professional can provide a safe, neutral, confidential setting to explore your concerns and move toward making changes to improve your situation.

Q: How do I make an appointment?

A: Stop by the office at Eppley Administration Building, Room 115, or call 402-554-2409 to schedule an initial appointment.

Q: Is there a fee at the Counseling Center?

A: NO, there is no fee for our services for students currently enrolled in classes at UNO or current UNO faculty and staff.

Q. What if I have an emergency?
A. During Center hours, (M-F, 9-5):

Call (402) 554-2409, and tell the receptionist you have an emergency. You may also come here on a walk-in basis.

After hours and on weekends:

If you are living on campus you should contact your Residence Hall Director or UNO Campus Security at 4-2911 or 4-2648.

If you are living off campus, the safest thing to do is to go to the nearest hospital emergency room or call the Police at 911.

 

Q: Does the Counseling Center provide psychological testing or assessments?

A: No, but we are able to make referrals.

Q: Are my counseling sessions confidential?

A. Visits to the UNO Counseling Center are strictly confidential and are not part of students' academic records. Exceptions are if there is imminent danger to an individual or society, child or elder abuse, or written permission is given which allows the sharing of information.

Q: What if I am just having difficulty deciding on an academic major?

 A: We provide academic and career counseling at no charge for enrolled students. Students are responsible only for the cost of the inventories and assessments used (usually $20 – $40).
