COUNSELING ON CAMPUS
The Counseling and Testing Center
The Counseling and Testing Center in Simmons Hall provides free counseling, psychotherapy, groups and psycho-education workshops for UA students.
Students visit the center for a variety of reasons, including:
- personal issues such as stress, depression, anxiety, self-esteem, identity concerns, substance use, family conflicts and relationship issues;
- deciding upon a major and a career direction; and
- improving study skills, addressing test anxiety, obtaining learning disorder and ADHD assessments.
The Counseling Center webpage provides extensive, interactive information about behavioral health, testing and academic major/career decision-making.
Counseling and psychotherapy services are free. There is a nominal charge for assessments work in the center.
A culturally diverse staff of psychologists, psychology interns and advanced doctoral students work in the center.
The center provides national standardized tests (e.g. ACT, CLEP), correspondence testing and accommodated testing.
