How to make a counseling appointment.

You can schedule an appointment by calling UMSL Counseling Services at: (314) 516-5711, visiting our web portal at, or by stopping by our office in MSC 131, which is located on the ground floor of the Millennium Student Center on North Campus. Our office hours are 8:30am to 4:30pm, Monday to Friday.

When you arrive for your first appointment, you will check in with Counseling Services support staff. Please plan to arrive about 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time to complete paperwork; if you arrive too late to allow time for paperwork your intake will have to be rescheduled. Once your intake appointment starts, you will have the chance to discuss the concerns that brought you to counseling. Your counselor will save some time at the end of the appointment to discuss recommendations based on your specific needs. Together, you and your counselor will explore your goals for counseling and decide the best course of action. If you’d like to know more, please check out our brochure, “What Should Clients Expect in Counseling?
