Counseling Services Office:
Solberg Hall (lower level)
Augustana Counseling Services works with a variety of resources to meet every student's emotional health and well-being. Augustana College works closely with Sioux Falls Psychological Services which provides students with a comprehensive and multidisciplinary group of more than a dozen mental health professionals.
Students will receive confidential, short-term individual counseling for a variety of personal issues such as adjustment to college, self-esteem, anxiety, depression and loss. Students may choose to see a counselor on-campus (Solberg Hall) or at Sioux Falls Psychological Services located on Summit Avenue, across the street from the Mikkelsen Library.
Cost ―There is no cost for full-time students (and part-time who have paid the student activities fee during the fall and/or spring semester). Students who require extended or long-term therapy may either be referred to other counseling services in the area or can choose to establish long-term or extended treatment plans with Sioux Falls Psychological Services. Counselors are available to provide assistance with insurance and sliding scales.
Hours ― Students are seen by appointment on weekdays during the academic year (fall semester, interim, spring semester) and during summer school when classes are in session
Vacation Periods (when classes are not in session) ―The on-campus office is not normally staffed with counseling personnel when classes are not in session.
