Welcome to CAPS!

Learn about our hybrid of virtual and in-person services or to make an appointment call 607-274-3136 during business hours (8:30am-5:00pm, M-F). 

Depending on individual assessment, professional best practices, and CAPS’ Scope of Practice, we can recommend any number of services represented on the Support Wheel. CAPS' adaptation of Stepped Care 2.0 allows for flexibility, respects that needs change over time, and minimizes the overall wait-time for services. 

CAPS Inclement Weather Policy

In cases of severe weather, CAPS follows Ithaca College’s lead on closures and late openings. 

Open-Remote Status - CAPS will be “open” but all appointments scheduled to occur in-person that day will be made virtual. If you have an appointment during “open-remote” operations, your counselor will reach out to arrange for a Zoom meeting. Students are not expected to come to the building during this time.

Closed Status - CAPS will be closed. Both virtual and in-person appointments will be canceled for the day. Cancellations will be communicated to students via email unless otherwise arranged. We strongly suggest checking the wider campus status for updates and your CAPS portal for direct messages. Additionally, CAPS after-hours on-call support will be available during this time (607-274-3136).

All students whose appointments are canceled due to inclement weather will be contacted upon reopening.
