Counseling Services Information for Parents


The following is a description of the counseling services that are available to your WSC student.


The WSC Counseling Center offers short-term individual and group counseling for a variety of concerns. Students come in for counseling to help with issues such as stress, depression, anxiety, academic motivation, and relationship problems.

A student’s first contact with the center is through a brief screening appointment with a counselor to determine the severity of the situation, how to best address their concerns, and to determine if an off-campus referral is appropriate.

The plan may include individual counseling at the WSC Counseling Center, a referral to a practitioner in the community, group counseling, attending a workshop, consultation with a psychologist for an evaluation, or referral to other campus academic support services. The WSC Counseling Center staff work closely with the WSC Student Health Office for medication evaluation.

The center also offers telephone or in person consultation to parents when they are concerned about their students.

What to do when concerned about your student.


The WSC Counseling Center counselors are available to talk to you during the day from 8:00 am to 5:00 at 402-375-7321. In a life threatening emergency, counselors can be reached through Campus Security at 402-375-7216.

Counselors are able to help you with many of the questions or concerns that you have about your student’s well-being. These questions may relate to your student’s needs or where the needed assistance can be obtained.

In as much as the counseling staff is eager to help you with your concerns or questions about your student, confidentiality is an essential aspect of the counseling relationship which limits the information they can share with you. Professional ethical guidelines and accreditation regulations form the basis of confidentiality in the counseling relationship. WSC students can expect communication with a counselor to be private except as noted in the confidentiality policy. Consequently, WSC counselors cannot discuss your student’s counseling in any way without written permission from your student. Counselors cannot confirm in any way if your student has been seen at the center.

As parents of WSC students, please feel free to contact the WSC Counseling Center if you have any concerns about your student, want the center to be aware of something concerning your student, or have questions about our services and how to access them.

Counselors do not initiate contact with students. Students need to contact the WSC Counseling Center for services.
