Same-Day Appointments on Campus

The Health Center and CAPS for Counseling Services can often accommodate same-day appointments. If you choose to walk-in for an appointment we will do our best to fit you into the schedule. However same-day appointments are prioritized based on urgency, so you may be scheduled for an appointment at a later time or referred to a community provider.
