At times a student may want or need mental health services that are beyond the scope of those the UCC can provide. Examples of this include circumstances in which more intensive or specialized treatment are indicated. If a student is looking for weekly, insight-oriented treatment for a longer duration for time, these services are also better suited for an off-campus referral. During the Drop-in appointment the counselor will discuss whether an off-campus referral would better address the student’s needs and if so will provide referrals to possible treatment providers.
Students with the University-sponsored Student Insurance who are seeking an off-campus referral for the first time are required to complete a Drop-in Appointment. To renew your existing UCC Aetna referral for a new academic year, please call the UCC front desk at (574)631-7336.

- Change the location button at the top of the left column to find providers in a specific area.
- Sort by tele-therapy to find providers who offer this service.
- Utilize the Help Guide in the upper right for information about insurance and scripts for contacting a new therapist.
