How to Make an Appointment
Appointments are not made via email
To make a counseling appointment, simply call (309) 556-3052 Monday through Friday, 8:00 am - 12:00 pm and 1:00 pm - 4:30 pm to schedule an appointment.
If you call during weekdays, you are more likely to speak to someone who can schedule
your appointment right then, typically for sometime within the week. Otherwise you
are welcome to leave a message, and we will return your call. Please let us know what
would be good times to reach you and whether it is OK to leave a message on your voice
mail. Please know that, to protect your confidentiality, only members of the Counseling
and Consultation Services department staff answer the phone. We do not have student
workers in this capacity.
