Same day service appointments:

Starting Tuesday, September 6th, UMB students can access counseling services through online scheduling for same-day appointments. Students will meet with a therapist for a confidential, solution-focused, 30-45 minute appointment that can be scheduled online. We encourage students to prioritize what is most important for them to discuss in this appointment. The counselor will focus on the primary goal to offer strategies, support, and recommendations.
Same day appointments are available:

Monday - Thursday


Requests open at 7:00 a.m.

Requests open at 6:00 a.m.

10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

*Appointments will be offered on a first come, first served basis. Same day appointments should be requested ON THE DAY that you are able to meet.
*Request should be made at least 2 hours before the student would like to meet
