Counseling and Student Disability Services (CSDS)
Welcome to the Department of Counseling and Student Disability Services at Albany State University. As a unit within the Division of Student Affairs, our purpose is to support the mission of the Division and University by assisting students in their total development through student-centered programs and services which facilitate intellectual, emotional, and social growth.
In our continued effort to foster the "students first" philosophy, we collaborate with other university divisions and community liaisons to provide a wide range of services for students. The scope of services that Counseling and Student Disability Services provides includes individual, couple, and group counseling, crisis intervention, outreach workshops, referrals to off-campus resources when appropriate and reasonable academic accommodations for students with documented disabilities.
Our department is committed to creating a safe, inclusive, and affirming environment. We strive to provide care that recognizes the influences of race, ethnicity, gender, sex, sexual orientation, age disability, religion, and other aspects of identify that are sensitive and responsive to the needs of our diverse students.
