About accessing care:

  • Students in crisis may walk-in for urgent mental health services at the health centers (Engemann Student Health Center on UPC or Eric Cohen Student Health Center at HSC) during operational hours without an appointment; this may include urgent matters involving a death in the family, suicide concern, crime/sexual assault survivor counseling, or other high-risk matters.

  • Urgent “sick” appointments for medical care are available “same-day” for students needing care during operational hours.

  • The evening operators of the 24/7 phone service line can connect to USC Student Health services when an urgent matter presents itself.

  • Sexual assault survivors requiring transportation to a SART center can ask RSVP to call a Lyft ride (an “on-call” staff advocates program to accompany survivors is currently staffing operations and will be activated this fall).

  • MySHR (the student health record portal) shows all available regular appointment times; many appointments can be made within 24-48 hours.

  • Campus incident post-ventions are regularly provided by Counseling and Mental Health Services on campus for students; departments are encouraged to contact us to learn more or to make arrangements.
