Cost/Eligibility for Services

All full-time, degree-seeking students enrolled on the Fredericksburg campus at the University of Mary Washington are eligible to participate in short-term individual counseling and/or group therapy. There are no session limits for group therapy participation.

All UMW community members, including part-time students and staff are eligible for consultation, referrals, crisis intervention, and outreach educational programs.

All services provided by CAPS are free. We cannot accept payment for individual counseling sessions. If a student needs to be referred for psychological or psychiatric services off-campus, payment arrangements must be negotiated between the student and the provider. CAPS staff conducts an annual survey of community mental health providers, which includes basic information on the insurance plans in which each clinician participates.

**Please note that CAPS cannot offer services during times when classes are not in session nor can we provide services to students not currently registered for classes. We also do not accept referrals for court-mandated counseling.
