Updates to Services and Operation

Thank you for contacting the MSU Counseling Center. The Counseling Center is currently open during the hours of 8 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday – Friday, however, we are primarily providing services to students remotely in order to minimize the risk of spreading COVID-19.

There are important changes in our services, so please read and adhere to the following regarding any appointments or counseling needs.

For details regarding general Missouri State University COVID guidlines, please visit COVID-19 Information.

COVID-19 Symptoms

If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 (fever, dry cough, shortness of breath) or you believe you may have been exposed to the COVID-19 virus, please report your symptoms to your medical care provider and stay at home to avoid potentially spreading the disease or becoming more ill.

Counseling Center Appointments

The majority of our counseling appointments are currently being conducted virtually through Zoom.

Anyone who visits the Counseling Center will be required to wear a mask and obey social distancing requirements.

To schedule a Zoom tele-mental health session or for additional questions, please contact our office at 417-836-5116 or counselingcenter@missouristate.edu.

For students who do not have access to a computer or smart phone to utilize Zoom, we are providing telephone counseling and/or face-to-face consultations.

If you are requesting an initial consultation, please contact us at 417-836-5116 or counselingcenter@missouristate.edu.

Ongoing Changes to Processes and Policies

Because the COVID situation across the US is a fluid, changing one, we also anticipate there may be updates and changes to the MSU Counseling Center processes and policies as needed to continue to create the safest possible conditions for students and employees. We will do our best to notify students in advance of any anticipated changes.

Thank you for your patience with us as we continue to navigate this national pandemic.
