Eligibility for Service

All students and spouses, domestic partners, and children of students who have paid the Student Life Fee are eligible for services at SCS. The Student Life Fee allows the patient to receive diagnostic assessment and short-term treatment and/or referral. Most students pay the Student Life Fee at the time of their quarterly tuition. If a student is unsure of his/her Student Life Fee status, he/she should contact the Registrar's Office at x2-7891 ((773) 702-7891).

Alumni are allowed one session at SCS, free of charge, to discuss treatment and referral options. Members of the University's Student Health Insurance Plan who wish to use their outpatient mental health benefits for therapy outside the SCS must first be assessed and referred by the SCS in order to avoid a penalty charge.
