Thank you for visiting the Georgia Tech Counseling Center website. This website is designed to provide an abundance of information about the Counseling Center and our services. We’re located on the second floor of the Smithgall Student Services Building (Flag Building) and offer comprehensive services to meet the personal, academic, developmental, career, and general mental health needs of students and others in our multicultural community.
The Counseling Center is a member of the Association of University and College Counseling Center Directors (AUCCCD), the Association for the Coordination of Counseling Center Clinical Services (ACCCCS), the Association of Counseling Center Training Agencies (ACCTA), and the Association of Psychology Postdoctoral and Internship Centers (APPIC). The Counseling Center is staffed by licensed psychologists, and counselors, as well as doctoral interns and graduate practicum students. The services at the Counseling Center are accredited by the International Association of Counseling Services (IACS).
The Counseling Center educates students for life by providing a variety of services and programs that are consistent and consonant with the strategic plan goals of the Institution and the Division of Student Life. Services include short-term individual counseling, group counseling, couples counseling, testing and assessment, crisis intervention, referral services, as well as outreach programming, and consultation for faculty and staff, family and friends of Georgia Tech students. Through our range of services, the Georgia Tech Counseling Center contributes to overall student success and the Institute’s core vision to “define the technological research university of the 21st century and educate the leaders of a technologically driven world.”
All counseling services are confidential and free of charge for eligible students. The Counseling Center provides brief or short-term therapy for a variety of presenting issues. Concerns that require on-going or long-term treatment are best served through referral to one of the many qualified community providers we have in the nearby Atlanta community.
Our primary goal is to provide students with the services, support, and skills needed to grow, develop, learn, and thrive while at Georgia Tech. Please do not hesitate to contact the Counseling Center if you have any questions, at (404) 894-2575.
All students currently registered in a degree-seeking program are eligible for services at the Counseling Center. A student must be registered in the current semester to utilize our services. If a student is on co-op or internship and not registered for classes, then they would not be eligible during that semester. In this instance we would be happy to provide appropriate referrals for services. See our Referral Services page for more information.
