Chaminade University of Honolulu offers accommodations for all actively enrolled students with disabilities in compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990, and the ADA Amendments Act (2008).
Students are responsible for contacting the Counseling Center to schedule an appointment. Verification of their disability will be requested through appropriate documentation and once received it will take up to approximately two to three weeks to review them. Appropriate paperwork will be completed by the student before notification will be sent out to their instructors. Accommodation paperwork will not be automatically sent out to instructors each semester, as the student is responsible to notify the Counseling Center each semester if changes or notifications are needed.
Confidential counseling for individuals and couples are also available for all actively enrolled students at Chaminade University of Honolulu. Students are able to receive up to 10 sessions free of charge. Sessions typically last 60 minutes, which are dependent on the needs of the student. If needed, referrals to off-campus mental health services are available and can be provided through the Counseling Center. Crisis services continue to be available for students who are referred out. Our services assist students with, but are not limited to, depression, anxiety, crisis intervention, self-esteem, loneliness, family concerns, interpersonal issues, time management, stress management, adjustments to college, identity issues, eating challenges, substance use issues, etc.
We are located in the Student Support Services Building, Room 101. The center is open Monday through Friday, 9:00am-7:00pm. The center is interested in serving all Chaminade University of Honolulu students.
