  • The student has misused or abused counseling services in the past.
  • The student refuses to sign the Consent for Counseling form or to comply with other policies and procedures deemed necessary to meet legal and ethical standards of care.

Non-Students
"Significant others" who are not Cal State San Marcos students may be seen with an enrolled student in conjoint (e.g., couples) counseling. One to two individual sessions with non-students can be conducted for the purposes of assessment for conjoint counseling, or to assist with assessment and treatment planning for a student's individual counseling (e.g., meeting once with a partner or family member to gather additional information).

Staff & Faculty
