Counseling and Psychological Services

Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) provides psychological support to students as they pursue their academic and personal goals, and strives to enhance the quality of each student’s experience at Oberlin. CAPS is primarily intended for assessment and short-term counseling, with referrals to private counselors in the Oberlin area if necessary. Because the center is funded through tuition, there are no additional charges for its services, although students are responsible for the cost of any external services. The number of sessions varies and is discussed as part of the initial intake process. In addition to scheduled individual appointments and groups, CAPS provides daily walk-in crisis hours and a confidential, professionally staffed after-hours phone line.
