Welcome to Alliant International University Counseling and Psychological Services Center.

The Counseling and Psychological Services Center at Alliant International University is located in Building M-14 on the Scripps Ranch campus in San Diego. Our office hours are 10:00AM–6:00PM Mondays through Thursdays.  The center is staffed by licensed psychologists, supervised post-doctoral psychology interns, and pre-doctoral psychology interns.  The counseling center provides free* and confidential individual, couples, and group counseling services to all fee-paying students at Alliant.  If you are at another of Alliant's locations, please call the Counseling Office front desk at 1-(858) 635-4481.

As a college student you may find yourself entering a new lifestyle and encountering new experiences and stressors unique to being in college.  We recognize that sometimes these new experiences can present you with challenges, and we want you to know that when challenges present themselves, you don’t need to go through it alone. At the counseling center, our goal is to provide services designed to enhance the mental and emotional well-being of all students, and we welcome you to stop by.

*For students seeking “Professional/Personal Growth” counseling to meet program requirements, a fee will apply.

The Mission of Alliant International University

Alliant International University prepares students for professional careers of service and leadership, and promotes the discovery and application of knowledge to improve the lives of people in diverse cultures and communities around the world.

Alliant is committed to excellence in four areas:

Education for Professional Practice
Alliant’s educational programs are designed to give students the knowledge, skills and ethical values they need to serve and lead effectively in a variety of professional settings. Alliant graduates are expected to achieve mastery of a body of knowledge and be able to apply that knowledge in professional practice in order to achieve desired and beneficial outcomes.

Scholarship in the Alliant context includes the discovery of new knowledge; the discovery of new applications of knowledge to solve practical problems; the integration of knowledge in new ways; and innovation in teaching knowledge and professional competencies.

Multicultural and International Competence
Alliant is an inclusive institution committed to serving diverse populations around the world by preparing professionals to work effectively across cultural and national boundaries; by increasing the number of professionals working in underserved areas; and by understanding and responding to the needs of diverse communities.

Community Engagement
Alliant’s faculty, students, alumni and staff are dedicated to making a positive difference in the world through professional education and practice. We measure the success of our university in part by the impact we have, both directly and indirectly, on the welfare of individuals, families, organizations and communities.

The Mission of Student Life Services

In partnership with students, faculty, other staff, and the greater community, the Student Life team is dedicated to the success of students by supporting their intellectual, social, mind-body health, and professional development, from orientation to graduation to professional practice.

We emphasize respect for the individual, appreciation of diversity, engagement with the community, participation, meaningful interaction, shared goals and outcomes and encouragement of self discovery as we carry out this mission in the Academic Support Center, the Career Center, the Counseling and Psychological Services Center, the Health Services-Wellness Center, the Disability Services Office, and Campus Community Development.

The Mission of The Counseling and Psychological Services Center

The goal of the Counseling and Psychological Services Center is to aid in the completion of the Student Life Service's mission.  Clients at the Counseling Center are provided with the greatest level of support possible in order to complete school and meet personal goals through the development of problem solving skills and issue resolution.  By providing such services, students can experience both academic and personal success during their time at Alliant International University.

Degree seeking students at the San Diego Campus of Alliant International University are eligible for counseling services.
