Please Note: If you are a NMSU student taking a CEP course and wish to participate please consult your instructor’s syllabus for the required number of counseling sessions and resulting credit. It is best to begin participating at the beginning or near the beginning of the semester. We cannot guarantee that students will be seen for the required number of sessions past a certain point in the semester. (For example if you need eight sessions to receive full extra credit but there are only four weeks remaining in the term, we will not be able to accommodate that request).

You will be contacted within two business days of submitting the form by one of the Clinic’s Graduate Assistants: Ja’lessa Hardwick, M.Ed. or Ellen Ijebor. Clients will be assigned to a group or individual sessions depending on their availability. Clients who sign up after the 1st of June will NOT be contacted.
