Psychiatric Services


MCAPS provides psychiatric services to the undergraduate students at The Claremont Colleges, including medication evaluations and medication monitoring. This applies to most psychotropic medications; however, different policies apply to ADHD medication (see below for details). Appointments with our psychiatrists are free to students.  Students can request an appointment for psychiatric services by calling MCAPS at (909) 621-8202 and speaking with the front desk administrator.

Please see MCAPS policy on stimulants/medications for ADHD here.
