The Office of Academic Services (OAS) provides academic accommodations for students with diagnosed disabilities, in accordance with the ADA and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, and based on recommendations from the Student Wellness and Counseling Center.

Student Wellness & Counseling Center

Student Wellness & Counseling Center (SWCC) provides holistic wellness services for all GU-Q students. You can explore a range of services from psychoeducation to outreach, assessment, crisis intervention, and counseling depending on your needs.

The SWCC also provides student-centered and program-centered consultation and training for other members of the GU-Q community. The services provided by the SWCC promote wellness by acknowledging and respecting differences and advocating for and fostering inclusive environments.
