An initial counseling appointment (or “intake”) may be scheduled by calling the CWC at 614.222.4044 or by completing the form above. Messages will be returned as soon as possible, typically within one business day. Students can also schedule an appointment at the Student Affairs desk, located inside the Student Affairs office in the Loann Crane Center for Design.

The CWC is able to provide a limited number of evening appointments if a student is unable to schedule an appointment during usual office hours. Office hours may vary when classes are not in session. Please call 614.222.4044 for details.
