Student Counseling Center

Welcome to the Counseling Center

The University of Arkansas - Fort Smith Student Counseling Center is committed to treating the psychiatric, behavioral, and emotional needs of our students. Our licensed, caring mental health professionals understand that mental illness and disorders are real, and are here to help you navigate through difficult times. 

UAFS students who are currently enrolled in credit courses, including UAF Engineering and ROTC programs, can receive up to eight counseling sessions each year at no charge. Concurrent students, including those in WATC as well as UAFS faculty and staff, are not eligible for counseling through the UAFS Student Counseling Center.
