Individual, personal counseling is available to BSC students at no cost in the MACC. In this interpersonal process, students work with a professionally trained counselor to meet their goals.
- If you are concerned about someone else and would like to consult about how best to help this person, please call the MACC at 701-224-5752 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and a Counselor will discuss your concerns with you.
- For BSC students with urgent counseling needs, please call the MACC 701-224-5752 to speak with a counselor. If help is needed outside of normal business hours, call the MACC to be directed to a 24-hour crisis line for support and information on a case by case basis.
- If you are a current BSC student and have experienced expenses related to the COVID-19 pandemic, you may be eligible for emergency financial assistance through the federal Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2021. Learn more here.
If you have a concern about a student, please submit a Counseling Referral. Anyone can submit a referral: a staff member, faculty, or another student.
A referral to the MACC for counseling services may be appropriate in the following scenarios:
- If you notice problematic behavior from a student
- If a student indicates a plan for problematic behavior, such as violence or self-harm
- If a student indicates a concern with their mental health, such as high levels of anxiety or depression
- If a student is experiencing grief, loss, or other personal hardship
Academic advisors are available in the MACC for students who are unable to connect with their assigned academic advisor. Advisors in the MACC assist students with general advising questions, degree planning, course registration, course withdrawal, transfer questions, and graduation applications.
Career counselors assist BSC students in making informed decisions about their career and educational goals. In addition to exploring your dream occupation, the MACC can help you find employment. Visit Career Services to learn more.
