Student Counseling Center
Welcome to the Student Counseling Center
Students face many trials in college and may benefit from addressing those trials with a skilled therapist in counseling.
The Student Counseling Center staff is committed to providing an ethical and professional service to the JBU Community within a biblical worldview.
Most students are served on an individual basis and typically meet weekly for a 45-50 minute session. Some individuals need only a few sessions to work through their personal concerns. Some need more time. The number of sessions is based on the student's need and particular circumstances.
In the event a student's concern requires intensive therapeutic or medical care beyond the scope of the counseling center or health services, our office will assist students with referrals to professional off-campus support services.
- Individual Therapy
- Therapeutic Groups for women and men
- Training, Psycho-educational programming and Consultation
- Pre-marital Counseling
Students are not charged for sessions 1-8. Also, there is no fee for group counseling. If a student
continues working in individual counseling after the 8th session, then there is a $10 charge per session. Or, the student can move into group counseling to continue their work. There are no fees associated with group work regardless of the number of sessions a student has had in individual.
Undergraduate fees are as follows:
Sessions 1-8: No charge
Sessions 9+: $10 per session
Graduate and Advance student fees are as follows:
Intake session: No charge
Sessions 2-8: $30 per session
Sessions 9+: $60 per session
