Counseling Services

The college experience is often complex, offering students tremendous intellectual and personal opportunities, as well as difficult challenges and demands. Many students seek personal counseling as a means to learn, grow, and enhance their personal and professional skills. College students are faced with many transitions such as moving away from home and ending and beginning relationships.

Individual counseling provides an opportunity for students to meet with a counselor to discuss and explore important aspects of their college experience. Counseling sessions may include adjustment to college life, relationship problems, stress, and/or more serious personal concerns. Personal mental health counseling is available without cost to students. Content and records of sessions are confidential.

The Counseling Services office is located in the Counseling Center in Haas Chapel, Building 46.   Appointments can be scheduled in person or by phone at 1-928-777-3312

Health Insurance

All students must have health insurance and provide proof of coverage on an annual basis, and insurance coverage must be continuous throughout enrollment at Embry-Riddle. The University recommends that students and/or their parents who are currently insured contact their plan administrator to ascertain benefits and limitations while enrolled.

All students will be automatically enrolled in the University’s student health insurance plan with the premium assessed to their student account. Students with comparable private insurance may waive out of this plan and have the charge removed from their account. Prior to completing the waiver request, we encourage students and/or their parents to review the University’s basic student plan and major medical options at UHCSR at  Failure to waive the insurance by the semester deadline will result in the non-refundable insurance fee remaining on your student account.

Embry-Riddle is not responsible for insurance waivers that are submitted after the deadlines. The waiver can be completed by logging into the ERNIE portal. Ernie>Campus Solutions>Main Menu>Self Serve
