The Downers Grove Campus has both full-time and part-time Student Counselors. The Student Counselors are available to help students at Midwestern University effectively deal with many issues through individual, couples, and family counseling.

Counseling by the on-campus Student Counselors is subsidized through student activity fees and is provided free of charge to all students of Midwestern University. Based on assessment by the counselors, it may be necessary at times to utilize alternate resources for specialized interventions. Referrals will be made to an appropriate specialist; however, these referrals may or may not be covered under the student's health plan. Under these circumstances the student is required to meet expenses not covered under their health plan.
