Psychological Assessment

The CMHC Assessment team appreciates your interest in our psychological assessment services. At this time, we have reached our capacity for services for Spring and Summer 2024 semesters and have closed the survey. We are updating the assessment process for Fall 2024. Please watch our website for more information as it becomes available. If there are concerns that can be addressed through counseling, including any academic concerns, please schedule an appointment with a CMHC clinician by calling 208-885-6716. Clinicians can talk with you about the reasons you are seeking assessment services and provide strategies that may be helpful and applicable. Clinicians are also able to provide referral resources if needed. If you need immediate assessment support, we have a list of providers who assess locally in Moscow, Spokane and Boise. If you need more provider resources, please contact us at

Assessment Providers in the Community

Psychological assessment at the Counseling and Mental Health Center (CMHC) includes assessment of various psychological and neurocognitive conditions, including but not limited to ADHD, learning disorders, traumatic brain injuries, autism spectrum disorder, personality disorders and many more.

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), learning disorders (LD) and neurocognitive disorders are complex disorders that require labor-intensive assessment procedures in order to diagnose, including between approximately 4-10 hours of direct meetings. At the U of I CMHC assessments are primarily provided as part of our doctoral internship training program and by a limited number of our staff members. When performed by trainees, the assessment is performed under the supervision of a psychologist with expertise in the area of psychological assessment. It typically takes between 4-8 weeks to complete the assessment process following completing all tasks, though it may be longer depending on the time of year.

The goal of assessment is to help U of I students clarify if learning issues, ADHD or other areas are having an impact on their academic, personal or social functioning. While not every student's assessment results will reveal an attention or learning issue, our hope is to help students better understand their functioning. That said, our major focus of assessment is on ADHD, Learning Issues and ASD. Due to this, it may be suggested that other options are considered (ex. Counseling, medication, academic support services) prior to being put on the assessment waitlist or while you are on the waitlist.

There is a sliding fee for the assessment, ranging from $50 to $500 based on the type of testing, as well as need as determined by the Financial Aid Office, as well as depending on the type of testing provided. The fee will be charged directly to your student account.
