Counseling Services

The Counseling Center provides confidential, free counseling services for enrolled Tougaloo College students. Walk-in consultations and individual and group counseling services are available. The mission of the Office of Counseling Services is to assist students in the transitioning from high school to college and to provide services that address their mental, social, and personal needs in order to ensure a successful college matriculation. The Director of Counseling Services helps the individual identify his/her issues or problems, aids in setting goals to overcome the problem, and lends support as the goals are reached and changes are made.
