Fees for Services
Counseling Services at the UNO Counseling and Career Center attempts to meet the needs of UNO students in regard to their individual personal and career development. Every student who comes to the university faces decisions and makes changes. With these changes occasionally come social or emotional concerns that generate conflicts and questions which make it difficult to function to one's full potential. Concerns about interpersonal relationships, depression, anxiety, feelings of inadequacy, loneliness, sexual identity and orientation, academics, career choice, and mental illness are difficulties that any individual may encounter. The primary function of Counseling Services in the Counseling and Career Center is to assist students with these difficulties in a professional, unbiased, objective way to promote personal growth in self-awareness, self-management, self-confidence, and interpersonal skills.
In addition to its focus on the individual student, the UNO Counseling and Career Center provides consultation and educational support for academic departments and student services within the University and offers specialized professional training for graduate students in counseling and other behavioral health professions. The UNO Counseling and Career Center's collaborative relationship with a variety of programs in colleges and universities throughout the local and regional area supports the University's mission and goals to further community partnerships in education, as well as support opportunities for career and community growth.
The UNO Counseling and Career Center is an accredited university counseling center and maintains the highest level of standards as set forth by the International Association of Counseling Services, Inc. and held by the Association of University and College Counseling Center Directors.

To schedule an appointment with a counselor, simply call or stop by during office hours ( 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM Monday - Friday). When calling the office, the secretary will ask for your name, a phone number where you may be reached, and whether you are coming in for personal or career counseling. You will be offered the first available appointment. Emergency appointments are available each day if immediate assistance is needed. No fees are charged for the initial intake/evaluation, for groups or workshops. A small fee (determined with your counselor, based on your income, and a sliding scale) will apply for ongoing personal counseling. Career and other testing is also subject to very reasonable fees. Your counselor will work with you regarding any financial concerns.
