  10. How Do Students Get into Services?

  11. Services are funded by the Student Service Fee and are therefore free. HOWEVER, beginning Monday, there will be a $25 fee for late cancellation and missed appointments. All students are eligible for a screening appointment to determine best course of action (long term or short term?) Even if a student has been referred to a community provider, crisis services, groups, workshops, and biofeedback are still available to students Fees
