Welcome to Arkansas State University!

Counseling Center

Welcome to the Counseling Center

The Counseling Center is committed to helping you benefit as much as possible from your experience at A-State. This support may include helping you to perform better academically, to cope with your emotions, or to be more effective in your relationships with others.

The University environment can be exciting and challenging. It also can be highly stressful since you may face academic pressures as well as demands from family, friends, and loved ones at the same time. While we work with students who may be experiencing a crisis, our goal is to help you deal with your concerns before they develop into more serious problems.

To enroll in counseling, please contact our office at 870-972-2318, drop by the office, or email us at counseling@astate.edu to schedule an initial intake. During the intake, you will consult with a counselor who will help determine the best way to meet your goals.  The Counseling Center provides multiple options for care including group counseling, online self-help through TAO, workshops, and short-term individual counseling.

The Arkansas State University Counseling Center is fully accredited by the International Accreditation of Counseling Services (IACS). The Counseling Center was evaluated by IACS against high standards of counseling practice and was found to offer competent and reliable professional services to its clientele. Approval by IACS is also dependent upon evidence of continued professional development as well as demonstration of excellence of counseling performance.
