All currently enrolled students at Knox College are eligible.
Counseling is the opportunity for you to address areas of concerns you may have. Your counselor will work with you to help identify different options available to bring about changes to resolve the presenting concern. The role of the counselor is to help clarify the issues, not to give advice.
Counseling sessions are 45-50 minutes. If you have an obligation that may interfere with the time, please let your counselor know.
All counseling is held in the strictest confidence as permitted by law. The counseling record is separate from the academic record.
Counseling is free to Knox students.
Call 309.341.7492 and request to see a counselor, email Vicki Swedlund, Administrative Assistant, or you can stop by Counseling Services to schedule an appointment. Please note that regular business hours are Monday-Friday 9:00am to 4:30pm. We do not reply to appointment requests after hours and responses will be made in the order received.
Getting an appointment is easy, but depending on the time of the term/academic year, the time can vary. With the consideration of everyone's schedule, we work hard on seeing students in a timely manner. We encourage all students to reach out to get an appointment as soon as they feel they would like to start services.
If a student is in crisis during regular hours, we ask that you immediately come over to get an appointment that day. Your safety is important to us and we want to encourage you to come to get services if needed. For more information see the Crisis Sessions page.
It all depends on what it feels like for you. We encourage students to come in for an emergency/crisis session if they feel it is indeed one. We prefer to see you. Some examples of a need for an emergency/crisis counseling session, include:
