Counseling & Accessibility Services

Mental and emotional wellness is key to your success in college. We can help!

The goal of Counseling services is to provide you with a safe, confidential, and supportive environment for you to discuss life concerns, challenges, and opportunities. Our professional mental health counselor assists students each year seeking help with transitioning to college, coping with college life, fear of failure, feelings of loneliness, anxiety, depression, academic concerns and many other areas. The counseling process is about problem-solving, expansion of awareness and coping skills, and personal growth. You do not need to be in crisis to benefit from counseling services.

Accessibility Services

The purpose of Accessibility services is to provide equal access opportunities, including the establishment and coordination of academic accommodations, auxiliary aids and programs to qualified students in accordance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. The office of CDS exercises a reasonable good faith effort to coordinate accommodations to enable students with disabilities to maximize their educational potential.

For complete information on support available for students with disabilities at NC Wesleyan University, please download the Accessibility Services Handbook below or email for more information.
