You are faced with many challenges as a graduate or professional student at University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB). You want to perform well in your classes and have a satisfying personal life. The Student Counseling Center can help you improve your ability to balance the many demands on the road towards earning your degree. Counseling is confidential and free to full- and part-time UMB students. We offer individual counseling, group workshops and provide assistance with outside referrals.

Please call 410-328-8404 if you are interested in services. After hours, you can leave a message (option 3) with your full name (please spell), your phone number, and your email. A staff member will follow up with you within one business day. You will then be scheduled for a phone triage to gather information and assess what you may need. Please review the individual sections below for more information. It is also recommended that you review the Additional Information section should you have any questions about confidentiality or requesting paperwork.


Short-term individual counseling can help students increase self-awareness and understanding, resolve problems, and learn new skills.
