  1. All currently enrolled students at the University of California, Santa Cruz, are eligible for services.  These services include crisis consultations and assessments, time-limited individual, couples,  and group counseling, and psychiatric services, based on the client's appropriateness for the services provided by CAPS.
  2. Primary point of entry is through a telephone call and scheduled phone triage (See Phone Triage Policy), although students can also walk in.
  3. Each student utilizing the services of CAPS is required to have an initial assessment each year, even if the student was a CAPS client previously.
  4. All students must show a valid student ID at their initial assessment appointment or provide proof of current enrollment on request.
  5. New, incoming students, who have registered for classes, may be seen prior to classes beginning, at management's discretion.
