Mental Health Counseling

Counseling services are available year-round and take place in-person, on campus, or virtually, via Telemental Health. No private health insurance or Medicaid is required to receive counseling.

AAC’s Collaborative Learning Studio (S270) offers academic support for liberal arts and studio courses. Peer and faculty tutors are available six days per week to help with papers, projects, assignments, time management, and study skills. We also provide hands-on help with Adobe Creative Cloud. The space is also home to a quiet work area, printer, and computers with Grammarly and text-to-speech software.
