What to Expect

When you first contact the center, a staff member will take some general information including contact information and a general description of the concern. The staff member will then schedule you for an initial appointment. During the initial appointment, also known as an intake, a center counselor will gather more detailed information including personal history, the reason(s) for seeking counseling at this particular time, and your goals for counseling. Once the intake appointment is completed, Counseling Center staff will review the information and will call you to schedule an appointment with the counselor that should be the best fit for your individual concerns. 


Counseling services are free-of-charge for all Kent State University students and employees. 

A nominal fee is charged for counseling services for all non-KSU clients. 

If there are any concerns about the cost of services, please contact The Counseling Center at 330-672-2208.
