Counseling Center
Rose Hill: Dealy Hall 226, (718) 817-3725
Lincoln Center: LL 503, (212) 636-6225 The college experience, although an exciting and challenging time, may include times of difficulty and considerable stress - the shock of leaving your home country and coming to a foreign culture, choosing a major and a vocation, making new friends, dealing with family problems, and so on.   Sometimes making these difficult decisions plus academic pressures may produce feelings of loneliness, depression or anxiety.  Everyone goes through periods of time when he or she could use some help.  The Counseling Center sees both domestic and foreign students who have every type of academic and personal problem.  They provide academic, vocational and personal assistance to meet the needs of each individual.

Some of the basic services which the counseling center provides are individual counseling, marriage counseling, counseling for eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia, vocational and academic counseling, an international student support group, occasional programs on such topics as procrastination and stress reduction, and, if necessary, referral to community resources.

For an appointment call the above numbers or drop by the Center.   The Rose Hill Counseling Center is open from 9:00 A.M. - 7:00 P.M. Mon. - Thurs., 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Friday.    The Lincoln Center Counseling Center is open from 9:00 A.M. - 7:00 P.M., Monday - Friday.  Any statements you make during counseling will be kept strictly confidential between you and your counselor, and services are free for currently enrolled students.

The counseling Center seeks to promote student development through the following services:

Personal Counseling:    The Center is staffed with mental health professionals, a consulting psychiatrist, and several doctoral students in clinical psychology.  Individual counseling and psychotherapy are offered in confidence and at no extra charge to students who are experiencing personal problems, whether or not the problem is affecting college performance.  Day and evening appointments are available.

Referral and Information:    The Center maintains an extensive list of private practitioners and agencies offering mental health and counseling services for students and their families who may wish to seek services outside the University.  Informative literature fostering personal and academic development is available to students.  Brochures on a variety of topics are located at the entrance of the Counseling Center.

Testing
 :   The Strong-Campbell Interest Inventory and the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, are offered to students who want to integrate their strengths, interests, and personal preferences with an academic, occupational or personal choice, such as selecting a career; or considering a particular hobby.  Students are invited to explore these choices and other decisions through counseling, together with the results of testing.  For the convenience of incoming students group test sessions are scheduled at the beginning of each semester.  Other students may take the tests on a walk-in basis.

Workshops and Special Events: Small group workshops in Study Skills, Stress Management, Test Anxiety Reduction, and Interpersonal Skills are offered each semester.  The Center also sponsors programs and lectures throughout the academic year on a variety of topics aimed at providing students with educational information to promote mental health.
International Student Support Group: The Center offers a special support group to help international students deal with the unique issues which they must face in a new culture.
 
Health Center and Your Health
Rose Hill:Thebaud Hall Annex, (718) 817-4160
Lincoln Center: L.C. Dorm Room 203, (212) 636-7160

Maintaining your health is something you should take very seriously.   It will involve paying attention to your physical condition and your emotional health as well as those things of a social and spiritual nature.  Scientists are proving that when emotional health is low and stress is not managed, one’s physical health is negatively affected.  Likewise, when one feels isolated or lonely one’s total well-being is affected.   If you are not healthy, then you are going to have a difficult time with your studies.  During your stay at Fordham University, there will probably be times when you do not feel well.  Whether you have physical problems or emotional ones, it is important to know where to go for assistance and to go there before you feel you have a severe problem.

Many of your medical needs can be met by Fordham’s Health Center.   The services of the Health Center are available to all students of the University.  There is no charge for treatment and medical supplies may be purchased at a minimal cost.  It is directed by a certified nurse practitioner in family health, and stuffed by nurse practirioners.

All registered students at Fordham are eligible to use student health services upon presentation of a current Fordham ID.   (Lincoln Center students should call before they make the trip up to the Rose Hill Campus to make sure the Center offers the care needed.)  The Student Health Center provides care for most student health needs including routine health care, emergency care and medical counseling.  Some insurance plans offer a lower deductible if students first use the Student Health Center.

Medical costs in the United States are extremely high.   The United States has no national health plan.  If you require hospitalization or other services not provided by the infirmary, you will be required to cover the cost yourself.  Your dependents are not covered by the Health Center, thus it is particularly important that you cover them with health and accident insurance while they are in the United States.

Federal regulations and Fordham University Policy require that individuals in F and J status (including   their  F-2 and J-2 dependents) have health insurance.  All students will be automatically enrolled in Fordham’s health insurance plan when they register for classes.  The annual cost is $540.00  per year for students and approximately $1,200 per year for a spouse.  All students will automatically be billed for health insurance, each semester or trimester, unless they qualify to waive Fordham’s policy.  You may waive Fordham’s policy by bringing a copy of your policy (in English) or insurance card to the office upon arrival.  Your policy must reflect amounts in United States dollars and meet the following minimum requirements: ·

$50,000 in coverage per accident or illness
$10,000 in coverage for medical evacuation to your home country ·
$7,500 in coverage for repatriation of remains in the event of death
·A deductible not to exceed $500 per accident or illness
More information about the student Health Insurance Plan can be obtained at the OIS.
