Summer Services at Cook Counseling Center in Blacksburg

  • Students enrolled in Summer 2024 courses with paid summer health fee are eligible for services at Cook Counseling Center. Most students enrolled in in-person summer courses have paid the summer health fee as part of their tuition. If you are enrolled in online course(s) or are unsure about your coverage, please check with the Bursar’s office.
  • Students in good academic standing* not enrolled in summer courses may need to pay either the health fee of $118 for the summer semester, or the day charge of $45 for each appointment. There are a variety of ways to pay the charge.
  • If you have unmet financial need, please talk to your current Cook Counseling provider or a Cook Connect triage clinician about options.
  • Students not connected to services in the current 2023/2024 academic year are asked to schedule a Cook Connect appointment to discuss treatment options BEFORE paying the summer health fee.
  • Students not eligible for services (for example: in between degree programs, recently graduated, currently out on suspension or medical withdrawal) are welcome to schedule a Cook Connect appointment for assistance in identifying mental health treatment options in their area.
  • There are several options for paying the Summer Health fee: Credit/debit card, Cash/check, HokieP, or adding it to your account with the Bursar. To pay the health fee with any of these options, please discuss with your Cook Counseling provider.

Note: * Students are considered in good academic standing if they are enrolled in Spring 2024, enrolled in Fall 2024, and are not: suspended, out on medical withdrawal, between degree programs, recently graduated and re-entering Virginia Tech, or suspended due to conduct or other issues.
