Our goal is to create a network of care and support that emphasizes early intervention as well as academic success and progress for all students.

Mental and Physical Health Services on Campus

The University offers brief therapy at Student Psychological Counseling Services, referrals and ongoing support from the Dean of Students Office, and support through the Student Health Center and Disability Services.

Seeking Assistance

Students are encouraged to reach out to campus resources to schedule an appointment with the appropriate office for support. Students who are not sure where to go for assistance are encouraged to schedule a meeting with the case manager in the Dean of Students Office by calling 714-997-6721.

Family members or others who are concerned about students are also welcome to inform the University of their concerns, and appropriate staff members will reach out to the student directly. Any concerned party may submit information online to the Student Concerns Intervention Team. The Student Concerns Intervention Team (SCIT) is a group that meets weekly to respond to student concerns and crises.
