Eligibility for Services
Counseling & Consultation Services (CCS) offers limited
generalist counseling services, by licensed and professionally
trained staff, to currently enrolled Butler University
students. CCS support the educational mission of Butler
University by providing short-term therapeutic intervention that
supports students in their personal and academic goals.
Consultation and programmatic outreach services are available to
faculty, staff and employees of Butler University.
In accordance with this mission, the services are not focused on
remedial or reconstructive (long term therapy or multiple
appointments weekly) experiences. Likewise, CCS is not
appropriate for students whose conditions are deemed more
complicated (for example, medically, in level of severity,
pharmacologically, legally, or due to specialized circumstances)
than can be treated in an ethically appropriate way by CCS staff.
Students presenting with such conditions will be referred to
appropriate resources in the community at the discretion of the
Director. Students are responsible for paying the costs incurred
for services and treatment provided through outside agencies.
Students who are currently enrolled at Butler University are
eligible for services. Any faculty or staff of Butler
University who are also enrolled in courses at Butler are not
eligible for psychotherapeutic services and will be referred to the
University's Employee Assistance Program for such services.
