Summer Services

Counseling Support Services is by appointment only during the summer months. Students can use the student health portal to schedule a meeting with the on-call counselor in June and July for a Consultation or Case Management appointment with the goal of assessing counseling concerns and reviewing options for best-fit services on- and off-campus. General inquiries can be directed via email to: counseling@northpark.edu, and appointments via the student health portal.
