The primary goal of counseling is to help students develop the personal awareness and skills necessary to overcome problems and to develop in ways that will allow them to take advantage of the educational opportunities at the university. CAPS works closely with Wellness Services and Student Health Services.

First Year Advising Center

The First Year Advising Center assists freshmen with their academic growth helping them achieve their academic goals. All incoming freshmen have a "hold" on their account until after they meet with their advisor during orientation. When it is time to register for the next semester, the hold will return until after the student once again meets with their advisor.

Student Case Management Services

The goal of the Office of Student Case Management Services is to help retain the student by providing relevant guidance on various issues.

Student Disability Resource Center (SDRC)

SDRC works with students and faculty to help make UWF an accessible learning environment. The SDRC offers a variety of services to students with documented disabilities. You might be contacted by SDRC about a student in your class who has documented needs for SDRC assistance and special accommodations in your class. If you believe a student might qualify for these services (or if you have a student who requests these accommodations), you should refer your student to SDRC for evaluation and documentation of needs for accommodations. Many students are not aware that they must initiate a request for disability services (unlike the secondary school environment, where this process is often initiated by others). The SDRC site provides information about the types of services available to students with documented needs.

Student Grievance Policy

The Student Grievance process provides students the opportunity to bring complaints to the attention of the University. The student Grievance process may only be used to grieve a University action or decision when there is no appeal process associated with that particular University action or decision. This process is deigned for student concerns for which there are not other avenues of redress.

Student Health Services

UWF Student Health Services (SHS) is committed to providing quality and cost effective general health services for students. Currently enrolled UWF students paying the student health fee are eligible for SHS services. However, the student health fee does not cover all possible charges at SHS. Certain exams, services, procedures, lab tests, and immunizations are provided at significantly reduced costs to the student.

Students are seen by appointment only at SHS. Appointments can be made by calling 850-474-2172 or visiting the clinic in person.

SHS is not equipped to function as an emergency room. For emergency situations on campus,
call 9-1-1 to ensure emergency care is received as soon as possible.
