BYU offers various campus resources in an effort to foster student success, inside and outside of the classroom. It is our goal that these resources will assist our students with their physical, spiritual, academic, financial, and emotional well-being at BYU. Too many times, students are reluctant to ask for help or are simply unaware of the existing support around them. We hope students will fully engage in the campus community and take advantage of available resources. Often, this engagement can mean seeking help for a host of individual needs.
OneStop Student Services
BYU OneStop is a service specifically for the student's convenience. It's OneStop's goal to create an experience that is simple, focused, and helpful. This centralized office serves students in the areas of financial aid, scholarships, student accounts, admission, and registration. Applicants can check the comprehensive OneStop website for answers to their questions before standing in line or waiting on the telephone.
University Accessibility Center
The University Accessibility Center (UAC) welcomes the opportunity to serve students who have disabilities. The UAC is committed to the pursuit of excellence and the realization of human potential. Their goal is to enable all students with disabilities equal access to an educational-opportunities environment at BYU.
Women's Services and Resources
This office's mission is to facilitate the personal, academic, and spiritual success of women at BYU by empowering them through education and connecting them with resources to help them excel as individuals, build thriving families, and strengthen their communities. WSR is an information and referral network for BYU students, staff, and faculty. They address women's issues in a positive, proactive way. As a Campus Life office, WSR collaborates with other BYU offices and departments, as well as the community, to best serve both the women and men at BYU. Services, events, and educational programs have been created to meet student needs and enhance the college experience.
Counseling and Psychological Services
Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS), a division of the Counseling and Career Center, provides individual psychotherapy for full-time students who are struggling with mental health, emotional, or behavioral issues which interfere with their ability to reach their potential as a student. All therapy sessions are free and confidential. Although they work with other concerned individuals (parents, faculty, bishops, etc.), each student's desire for, or participation in psychotherapy will not be discussed in any way with these entities without written permission. Services are provided by more than 25 PhD-level psychologists, as well as doctoral students in training.
Counseling and Psychological Services offers individual therapy at no cost for full-time students. Some of the issues addressed include: depression, anxiety, eating disorders, relationship/marital problems, family issues, and many others.
CAPS offers more than 20 different therapy groups to help students. Some groups focus on particular topics such as anxiety, meditation, eating/body image issues, abuse, and addictions while others are open to students struggling with a wide variety of issues.
Multicultural Student Services
Multicultural Student Services is a unique team of multicultural specialists who value the total development of the multicultural student within the aims of a BYU education. The office seeks to develop a BYU environment of "fellow citizenry" where multiculturalism can flourish.
The Multicultural Student Services office serves American minority students and the university community at BYU by offering a number of programs and services:
- Advisement in academic, cultural, financial, social, and personal needs
- Foster leadership development and opportunities
- Provide cultural events which educate and include all students

The BYU Writing Center has served writers across campus for more than 30 years. Their current staff of about 30 tutors provides 9,000+ free tutoring sessions each year and helps writers from almost every college on campus. They work with any writer on any assignment at any stage of the writing process.
Since BYU hopes to help students gain and make use of transferable writing skills, the writing center seeks to engage writers in conversations about writing principles, processes, and practices. The focus is on developing writers, not just papers, and seeking to improve writers one assignment at a time.
BYU's Math Lab is located in 159 TMCB (Talmage Building) and is open every day of the week, except Sunday.

BYU offers an open-major advisement center along with specific college advisement centers to best meet the needs of each individual student. The vision of the campus advisement community includes guiding every student to academic success and personal development.
