Counselors offer assistance for students experiencing a crisis. Students experiencing a crisis may feel extremely distressed, overwhelmed, depressed, hopeless, or angry.

Same-day consultation services are available during our regular hours.

After Hours

If the Counseling, Advising, and Transfer Center is closed and you are experiencing a crisis, contact the College of DuPage Police Department at ext. 2000, or your local police department if off campus.
