Schedule an Appointment


The Student Counseling Center is ready to serve you.

Students are encouraged to contact us for an appointment.

At this time, the Counseling Center is providing both in-person and telehealth counseling.

Upon scheduling your appointment, you will receive instructions to sign in to the Medicat Patient Portal using your Whittier credentials. Once you've logged in, you'll complete a brief set of forms that will help your therapist understand your history and major concerns that prompted you to seek counseling. 

For Virtual Appointments: On the day of your appointment, please sign in to the Medicat Patient Portal 15 minutes prior to your appointment to complete additional forms.

For In-Person Appointments: Come into the Counseling Center Office 15 minutes prior to your appointment to complete additional forms.


If you are unable for any reason to keep a scheduled appointment, please call us at 562.907.4239 as soon as possible.


Counseling sessions are provided at no cost to currently enrolled Whittier College students. Costs of services provided are underwritten by the student health fee included in a student’s tuition each semester. 


All Whittier College students now have access to free tele-medicine, tele-counseling, crisis consultation and life coaching through the Virtual Care Group.
