No, it is not. Often, Counseling and Psychological Services is confused with academic counseling. If you are seeking academic assistance, you should contact Univeristy Center for Undergraduate Advising in the Horn Center. Note: If you are transferring to CSULB from another school, you should first meet with someone in University Outreach and School Relations.
All of the psychologists at CAPS are capable of assisting you with any concern you might have. When making an appointment with CAPS, it is best to accept the first available appointment that meets your personal schedule. Counseling appointments are scheduled on a first-come, first-serve basis and fill up quite quickly. We cannot assure you that you will be able to meet with a specific counselor of your choosing, and waiting for the availability of a specific counselor might prolong your opportunity to address your concerns with a counselor.
A Workshop is an event that is preplanned and often facilitated by one or more of CAPS counselors. Workshops address a specific topic and are a form of university outreach that the counselors at CAPS provide. A Workshop is scheduled through contact with the CAPS Outreach Coordinator.
Group Counseling is a form of counseling in which a small number of people meet together under the guidance of professionally trained therapists to help themselves, while at the same time help others within the group. Each semester a new list of Groups is available at CAPS.
