ACOM provides a student assistance program at no cost to students which consists of 3 free counseling visits for students and immediate family members, 1 free legal consultation, and 1 free financial consultation. Visits beyond this will be at the student’s (or student’s family member’s) expense, and in the case of mental health counseling, is generally covered under the student’s health insurance plan. Co-pays and deductibles are the student’s responsibility.
Counseling is confidential between the student and counselor, except for specific circumstances that indicate the student is a danger to himself or others or in the case of child or elder abuse. If counseling is mandated by the Student Progress Committee or other authorized faculty, the counselor may confirm (with the appropriate information release) the student’s attendance at counseling sessions.
