Counseling is designed to facilitate student achievement, improve student behavior and attendance and help students develop socially. The University has full time professional counselors in every campus to provide counseling services to students and university community. All campuses have full-time counselors to support students who are experiencing personal or academic challenges and intervene when students face behavioral, physical, or mental health challenges. The counselors often help students mediate conflicts with their peers, lecturers or parents. Counselors often help special needs students integrate into classrooms and oversee programs that address requirements for students with special needs or learning difficulties.

- Providing instruction on psychological and social issues.
