Eligibility for Services
Currently enrolled Citadel undergraduate and graduate students are eligible for counseling services at the Citadel Counseling Center. We are not able to provide video counseling or tele-counseling to enrolled students participating in study abroad programs or enrolled in on-line classes if the student is unable to attend appointments at the Counseling Center. Instead, the Citadel Counseling Center staff can provide a telephone consultation with the student and offer off campus referrals in the student’s community.
Counseling Services are provided in person at the Citadel Counseling Center. Students may schedule a first-time intake appointment during office hours by calling our office at 843-953-6799 or visiting our office at 203 Richardson Avenue. Subsequent appointments may be scheduled at the conclusion of each appointment, or by telephone.
Individual counseling sessions are 50 minutes in length. If services are not available to meet the student’s particular needs, an appropriate referral will be provided.
In a counseling relationship, feelings of trust are critical. Therefore, counselors maintain confidentiality in compliance with state laws and national ethical standards for psychologists and counselors. The information below provides details about the confidentiality policy of our Center.
All communications between client and therapist will be held in confidence and will not be revealed to anyone outside the Counseling Center unless the client provides written authorization to release information. However, there are legal and ethical exceptions to confidentiality which require that the therapist take responsible action.
These exceptions apply:
- When there is a clear and substantial risk of imminent serious harm to the client or another person. In these circumstances, counselors are legally required to take action to protect life.
- In the case of child abuse or abuse of a mentally retarded or developmentally disabled adult. In these cases, counselors are legally required to report the abuse to Child or Adult Protective Services.
- In the event of a court order for information.
In the event of an emergency, the cadets should communicate clearly to the secretary his/her needs and that he/she wants to see a counselor immediately.
After office hours, cadets can go to the Infirmary and request to speak with a counselor. The Infirmary staff will contact a counselor as needed. Alternatively, students may call 911, go to a hospital emergency room, or call Citadel Public Safety at 843-953-5114. Expenses incurred off-campus for treatment are the student’s responsibility.
Short-term counseling services are free to all students currently enrolled at The Citadel. If a counselor recommends that a student seek long-term psychotherapy services, a psychiatric evaluation, or other specialized mental health services with an off campus professional, the student is responsible for the payment for these off-campus services.
Referral Services For Students
If a student’s counseling needs extend beyond the scope of the Counseling Center’s short-term counseling model, the student will be referred to off-campus counseling resources. The Citadel Counseling Center staff can offer recommendations for off-campus mental health professionals if a student needs services which are not offered at The Citadel Counseling Center. Referral services for long-term psychotherapy, psychiatric evaluations, or other specialized services are provided as needed. Expenses incurred off campus for psychological services are the student’s responsibility.
Phone: (843) 953 6847/4827
Health fees and Insurance
Cadets pay a mandatory health fee, which covers professional medical services at The Citadel Infirmary. Visits to all clinics are free for cadets. Additional fees are assessed for medications, immunizations, lab tests, EKGs, x-rays, orthopedic equipment and supplies. Medications are provided at cost, using generic medications purchased under a state contract. X-rays and EKGs are provided at substantially lower cost than in the local community.
