Need to Meet with a Counselor?
To speak with a counselor, please choose one of the following methods:
Drop In Session 10-15 Minute Sessions
- Most questions/concerns that do not require paperwork can be handled on drop-in. Drop in sessions are available Monday through Friday. We are closed Saturday and Sunday. For times please click the link below to view the drop in schedule. If possible please have your device near you as the counselor will likely ask you to log into your account during your session.
Please note: If students log in after or before the designated times you will receive an email requesting that you log back in during designated hours.
- Have a quick simple question? Email services will be available beginning August 24th through December 11th. You can expect an email response within 2 business days.
More complex questions/concerns or issues that require paperwork being completed can be addressed during a 30 minute appointment.
- Available Monday - Thursday 8:00am-6:30pm and Friday 8:00am-4:00pm.
- The counselor will contact you at the phone number on file at your scheduled appointment. Please make sure your contact information is up to date on your myGav student portal. Allow 5-10 minutes before or after your scheduled appointment time. You can let the counselor know if you prefer to speak to them via phone or in real-time using Cranium Cafe.
