What the UCC has to offer
The University of North Dakota Counseling Center (UCC) offers a wide range of services and programs for university students and community. The UCC maintains seven program components: personal counseling, career counseling, substance abuse prevention, national/individual testing, consultation, and outreach programs.
How to Help
Most find it difficult to send a loved one off to college. Students gain a larger sense of self and independence, but also face challenges, some of which can be frightening. Finding support in addressing these challenges is important. Allow your student to utilize their own decision making skills, but aid them by guiding him or her to the campus resources provided. UND Cares provides information on how parents can recognize distress and address it.

In general, all communications between your student and counselor are confidential. No information about you will be released outside the Center without your student's permission.
The EXCEPTIONS to confidentiality include:
