                             Remote Registration Access Hours


When you access registration link

Students register for services online 11am to 1pm Monday through Friday from our Access page.  After you complete all the forms a counselor will be in touch within 24 hours (via email or phone) to schedule an Initial Assessment interview (please know if contacted via phone, the incoming call will likely come from a blocked or unknown number). 

For students who are new to TCS, use access page to complete registration.  If you are physically located outside the state of Pennsylvania, it is necessary for you to work with mental health professionals who are licensed to practice in your state.  If you are interested in continuing counseling in a state other than Pennsylvania, please indicate if you would like our office to assist you to find a provider in your area.

Completing the initial forms takes about 45 minutes.  After you are assigned a counselor, that counselor will reach out to you to set-up the initial assessment.  

You may also be scheduled to meet with one of our psychiatrists if medication may be needed.  Meeting with a psychiatrist can only occur after registering and meeting with one of our walk in clinic counselors. 

Sometimes a referral is given to an on-campus resource or to mental health resources outside the university.  In these cases, your counselor will discuss with you the need for the referral and will help to make the referral successful or schedule a meeting with the TCS referral coordinator to assist you. 

If you have any questions throughout the process, please feel free to ask any of the staff for clarification.  We look forward to working with you.
