Counseling Services

Student Counseling Services (SCS) is committed to helping USC students creatively handle the stresses and challenges in their academic and personal goals. Through counseling, students can achieve a sense of competence, empowerment and well-being in order to decrease any suffering they might experience and to reach their full potential as citizens of both USC and the multicultural world we live in.

The professional staff is diverse in terms of age, gender, ethnicity and sexual/affectional orientation. The staff includes psychologists, social workers, psychiatrists and advanced graduate students in social work and psychology. The staff is highly trained and experienced in helping students successfully cope with issues and concerns that are common to the undergraduate, graduate or professional school experience.

To initiate counseling, participate in groups, attend workshops or receive off-campus referrals, call (213) 740-7711, or come to Student Counseling Services on the first floor of YWC for additional information. Office hours are Monday-Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, visit
