Counseling and Wellness Center

APU offers the Counseling and Wellness Center (CWC) as a confidential and safe place for students, staff, faculty and their families to discuss topics such as, but not limited to, behavioral changes, learning disability, emotional challenges, family dynamics, goal setting, relationship distress, academic anxiety and stress, and the transition to being a student in a challenging academic environment. The CWC adheres to the standards of confidentiality as set forth by counseling ethics and Alaska state law.

Though the CWC does not offer psychiatric or nursing services, the CWC offers a variety of community referrals as requested or deemed appropriate. The CWC will offer a strengths-based environment for students, staff, faculty, and their family members (upon approval) to receive counseling. Services are provided across the APU community, including targeted services to Graduate and Post-Graduate Students, Adult Undergraduates, Campus Undergraduates, and Early Honors students.
