Schedule an Appointment

To schedule an appointment, you may complete and submit the registration form below, or send an email to counseling@otterbein.edu. You can also call 614.823.1333 or stop by our office, located at 146 W Home St. We will respond by email or phone within 24 business hours.

During Fall/Spring Semestersbusiness hours are Monday through Friday, 8:30 am to 5:00 pm. We will respond to your request within 24 business hours. Students may also come to the Counseling Center between 3:00 pm and 4:00 pm, Monday-Friday for an urgent walk-in session. Urgent sessions are for students who are not in immediate danger, but whose symptoms and/or situations require urgent attention. 

During Summer Sessions, times available for counseling appointments are: Monday, Wednesday, Thursday from 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm, and Tuesday, Friday from 9:00 am- 12 noon. Urgent walk-in sessions are Monday through Friday, 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm. Additional openings may be made available, as needed. Because we have limited administrative coverage during the summer, please call our office, rather than registering online, to schedule an appointment. 

If you are experiencing an EMERGENCY or considering imminent or serious harm to yourself or someone else, do not fill out this appointment form. Instead immediately contact Emergency Medical Services (EMS) at 911. Or, go to a nearby hospital emergency room at St. Ann's (500 S. Cleveland Ave.), or Ohio Health (300 Polaris Pkwy).

We encourage you to contact a friend, faculty, staff or family member, or the Otterbein Police (614-823-1222) to stay with you until help arrives. The EMS Professionals will determine with you the next steps to insure your safety.
