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.
