At St. Paul's University, we are aware that once in a while, there will arise situations that may distract the students from their studies and prevent them from having a great experience in the university. The University Counseling Center boosts the chances of our students succeeding in achieving their academic goals by providing professional personal, career, and academic counseling. The Counseling Center also tailor makes relevant training programs, workshops and public lectures on areas that the students may be facing challenges in. The Counseling Center has a professional Counseling Psychologist and is open Monday to Friday from 8.30 am to 5.00pm. The Center provides both face to face and online counseling. Online counseling is used as an adjunct for the face to face counseling for our students in the satellite campuses where the Counselor visits only on specific days. Students in the evening programs who may not have the time to leave their offices to go see a counselor benefit from online counseling.
