Cost of Services
The EKU Psychology Clinic is a non-profit organization. We do not accept insurance. Cost of services is based on a sliding scale, which is determined by a person’s annual income, number of dependents in their household, and other financial considerations which may affect their ability to pay.
Individual therapy sessions may range from $6.00 to $40.00 per visit. EKU students are not charged for therapy or assessment services.
For the general public and community members, assessments that takes 2 or more hours to administer will cost $400.00, unless there are extenuating circumstances warranting a fee reduction. The client is charged following the completion of their assessment report.
Students from select schools that we have prior agreements with (Berea College, Morehead State University, and Asbury University) will be charged $50.00 for an assessment.
