Counseling Services

Klamath Falls Campus

Counseling services are offered at the Integrated Student Health Center Building in front of the Sustainable Village. Counselors offer personal, educational, and crisis counseling to students. Sessions are private and confidential. All students are eligible for a free assessment session. Depending on a student's presenting concerns and the resources available, ongoing counseling is available free of charge to students enrolled in six or more on-campus credits and who have paid the Student Health Fee. Sometimes students are referred to services off-campus to better address their needs.

Counselors also offer consultation to faculty, staff, and students who want advice on how to help students with problems.

  • coping with past or present abusive situations
  • stalking
  • dating issues

  • sexuality

  • substance abuse
  • being a minority group member at Oregon Tech
  • grief
If you have a personal concern, and aren't sure where to go for help, our staff will likely be able to assist you.

Academic Counseling

Our counseling staff can offer support resolving academic problems, including test anxiety, time management, motivation, study skills, and problems with faculty. We frequently refer students to other campus resources for additional support.

Career Counseling

Often, concerns about career direction and whether a specific major is the best fit arise during the course of a college student's academic career. Our counseling staff are happy to have these discussions with students and to assist in helping students connect to additional resources as needed. For instance, the Oregon Tech Career Services department ( specializes in career exploration and job seeking skills.

Substance Abuse Treatment

For students struggling with alcohol or other drug problems, Oregon Tech has worked with a local community agency (Lutheran Community Services Northwest, or LCS) to develop a program called ADAPT (Alcohol and Drug Abuse Prevention and Treatment). This program includes evaluation and outpatient treatment at LCS for individuals ready to explore alternatives to alcohol and drugs. Students interested in a referral to the ADAPT program should meet with one of Oregon Tech's counselors as a first step.

If you think you might have an alcohol or drug problem, but you aren't sure if you need help, we recommend you come to the Integrated Student Health Center for a preliminary assessment. Individuals interested in conducting a confidential self-assessment of their drinking behavior may want to complete a screening tool such as the Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT) developed by the World Health Organization.
