The Counseling Center provides an array of services, all of which are confidential and free for matriculated students.


To Meet With a Counselor

To Meet With a Counselor:

  • Attend our walk-in hours Monday-Friday from 9 a.m.-noon and 1:30-4:30 p.m. Walk-in hours are available to any student to see a counselor on the same day for a routine concern, urgent need, or crisis situation. You can schedule a follow-up appointment or request a specific counselor moving forward. 
  • If walk-in hours do not fit your schedule, you may email us at to request a scheduled appointment.
  • To join a therapy group, attend a walk-in appointment or email the group leader to schedule a pre-group meeting.
  • If you have a mental health need after business hours or on the weekend, call the on-call counselor at 315-228-7385 and dial #2.

For students unable to attend walk-in hours or have a unique treatment need, you can request a routine scheduled appointment with a counselor by completing the Appointment Request Form. The office manager processes these requests on a first come, first-served basis and will reply to students by the next business day to offer the first available appointments. The Appointment Request Form should not be used for crisis or urgent counseling requests.

FYI: Students must be signed in through eduroam or Colgate WiFi to access the Appointment Request Form. If a student is off-campus, they must be connected through Colgate's VPN, Global Connect.
