Counseling Services

The University of Northwestern Ohio provides counseling services to all students.  University counselors are available to discuss social or personal adjustment issues and to provide contact information about local doctors and mental health counselors.  Students are encouraged to visit the Counseling Office to seek assistance with coursework, potential grade point average, and personal conflicts, as well as to discuss campus issues regarding academic progress, absences, and drug and alcohol policies.  Additionally, the Counseling Office promotes several multicultural and wellness programs on campus each year.
