The Counseling & Testing Center (CTC), a unit of Student Affairs & Enrollment Management, offers students access to a wide range of counseling and testing services and resources. There is no fee for counseling services.

Students come to the Counseling Center with a broad range of concerns ranging from adjustment and developmental issues to complex psychological problems. Students vary in age from late adolescence to mid-life and beyond. The clinical orientation of the Counseling Center is based on a developmental and humanistic model and emphasizes personal development, coping skills, prevention, and wellness within a brief treatment framework.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Counseling & Testing Center is to advance the academic mission of the university by facilitating students' educational, personal, social and cultural development in order to promote success and persistence within the university. We are committed to fostering a positive campus climate by promoting mutual respect and supporting cultural diversity within our community.

Services

The CTC strives to provide equal access to the following programs and services in an environment of mutual respect and understanding of diversity based on the Council for the Advancement of Standards in Higher Education (CAS) Guidelines:

  • Counseling services to assist students who may be experiencing psychological, behavioral, or learning difficulties.
  • Outreach Programs focused on the developmental needs of college students designed to maximize the ability of students to benefit from the academic environment and experience.
  • Assessment services to identify student needs and appropriate services and referrals.
  • Teaching, training and supervision for graduate students in counseling or psychology.
