Student Life Assistance Program
Being a student isn’t always easy. There is the academic side of having lectures, assignments, presentations, and quizzes. Then there are life challenges such as finance, health, relationships, and unforeseen circumstances that can impact your focus on school. It can be frustrating when personal problems surface and there is a gap between our reality and our expectations. This gap causes stress, and anxiety, and this can easily affect our academic performance and/or relationships. Westcliff University has partnered with IMPACT Student Life Assistance Program to provide you with professional support 24 hours a day, 365 days a year along with counseling sessions. Put yourself first and take advantage of the services provided to you by our partnership. You can also request some of these resources through an online form.
Community and Mental Health Resources
In addition to our professional support, the Student Services Advisors have put together a handout filled with community and mental health resources for you to choose from that best fit your needs.
