Counseling & Psychological Services

While at USF, you'll have access to a broad range of services to support your personal development. CAPS offers in-person and remote individual, couples, and group therapy to currently enrolled students residing within California — state regulations prevent provision of therapy across state lines. Students may choose to meet in person at CAPS or to talk either by confidential video or telephone and can engage in Single Session Therapy (SST) or in brief ongoing therapy. There are no fees for services.
