Do I need a referral to receive services at your clinic?
Although we accept referrals from physicians, teachers, physiatrists, orthodontists and other professionals, a referral is not necessary.
With whom will I work?
Services are provided by students under the direct supervision of certified and licensed clinical supervisors.
Additionally, all education programs are accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE). The school counseling and community counseling programs in the Department of Counseling and Educational Psychology hold national accreditation from the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP). The Speech-Language Pathology program holds national accreditation from the Council on Academic Accreditation (CAA) in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology of the American Speech, Language, and Hearing Association (ASHA).
What is the cost?
Minimum fees for services are charged to offset operational costs and are significantly lower than the fees currently being charged by the private sector. You should receive notice of your fees before services are provided. We accept cash, check, or credit card. We also offer online payment via our West Georgia Mall payment portal. Fees are due by midterm of each semester. Clients will not be scheduled for services with an outstanding balance. Clients with limited payment sources may apply for supplemental scholarships. Applications for the CCC Scholarships are available at the front desk. Please, contact the CCC for more information.
Are services confidential?
Every effort is made to ensure the confidentiality of information on your case. The clinic faculty and students will comply with the Privacy Regulations by HIPAA and FERPA regarding use and disclosure of your health information and/or educational record. You will be given a Privacy Notice, which includes your rights and our responsibilities for maintaining your protected health information.
Therapy sessions may be observed by a client’s family members, supervisors, or students in the designated programs if adequate space for viewing is available and upon supervisor approval. Observations are confidential, and information may not be discussed with others who are not part of the treatment or diagnostic team. Due to Privacy regulations in the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), outside individuals must have written authorization from the client or client’s guardian to observe.
