CAPS Appointment FAQ's

Sometimes The Best Plan Is Outside of CAPS

Sometimes, the best plan for a student involves other University resources or off-campus services. This can happen for a number of reasons, like insurance needs, the kind of services a student is looking for, or what would be the best match for a student's concerns and goals. When that's the case, we'll help you identify people to call to get started. Meet with a care coordinator for a free Resource & Referral appointment or talk with your CAPS provider about your options.
