Wright State University’s Counseling and Wellness Services (CWS) has now changed their policy to allow students who were registered for the previous academic year and the next academic year, but not the summer semester, to receive services, according to Robert Rando, director of CWS.

CWS used to only offer services over the summer to students who were registered for the summer semester.

“We had initially instituted a change in our policy for this summer semester. Due to the pandemic, we decided to revert to our previous policy,” said Rando. “If a student is registered during the Spring 2020 semester and is also registered for the Fall 2020 semester, they are eligible to receive services at CWS during the summer 2020 term.”

To receive services over the summer, students will still need to pay the $20 semester service fee. This is the same as during the fall and spring semester, according to CWS.

At this time, CWS is open from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday but is not offering in-person mental health services due to the coronavirus.

All mental health services are being offered via telephone or other electronic methods, according to CWS.

“Our hope is that during this challenging time, we can ease students’ access to mental health services during the summer term,” said Rando.

CWS is accepting new patients at this time via phone call at 937-775-3407. New patients should leave a message with their name, phone number and UID number and CWS will return the call to begin the new patient process.
